Complex Adaptive Systems Course @ University of New Mexico

A graduate introduction to selected topics in the field of complex adaptive systems, including: definitions of complexity, cellular automata, dynamical systems, genetic algorithms, computer immune systems, and artificial life. The course will emphasize computational tools to measure, simulate and analyze complexity in exemplar complex systems. Because New Mexico is a center of research in complex adaptive systems, there may be guest speakers throughout the semester. Programming and mathematical maturity or permission of instructor required.
