  3. Introduction to Complexity

Introduction to Complexity

In this course you'll learn about the tools used by scientists to understand complex systems. The topics you'll learn about include dynamics, chaos, fractals, information theory, self-organization, agent-based modeling, and networks. You’ll also get a sense of how these topics fit together to help explain how complexity arises and evolves in nature, society, and technology. There are no prerequisites. You don't need a science or math background to take this introductory course; it simply requires an interest in the field and the willingness to participate in a hands-on approach to the subject.  

The course can be take under the instruction of the authors Prof. Melanie Mitchell and Santiago Guisasola from Santa Fe Institute (USA) or with instructor Prof. Leonid Chechurin from LUT University (Finland).

Learning outcomes

Upon successful completion of the course the learner is expected to be able to:
