DC Freshman Seminar: Modeling Complex Systems
/ Dietrich College Interdisciplinary /
Most of the major issues confronting humanity---such as climate change, financial collapse, ecosystem survival, terrorism, and disease epidemics---are the result of complex systems where the interactions of the pieces of the system create a whole that is rather different thanany of its parts. Unfortunately, traditional scientific methods that focus on reducing systems to their parts and then analyzing each part provide little insight into such systems. This seminar explores the behavior of complex systems as well as how to model and understand them using both traditional tools and computer-based approaches.
