Complex and Adaptive Dynamical Systems

Complex system theory deals with dynamical systems in a wide range of disciplines showing non-trivial and/or emergent properties. This course provides the relevant core knowledge. It is suitable for all students having a basic math education. Basic concepts and phenomena covered will include network theory: small-world, scale-invariant, percolating bifurcation theory, adaptive systems, deterministic chaos, strange attractors, catastrophe theory information theory, Shannon entropy, mutual information, complexity cellular automata, self-organized criticality
