Section 001 http://www.pscs.umich.edu/CSCS/education/CSCS-courses/cscs501-f00.html

Instructor(s): Rick Riolo (rlriolo@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: Grad. Standing or Instructor permission. Graduate Standing. (3).

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: http://www.pscs.umich.edu/CSCS/education/CSCS-courses/cscs501-f00.html

This course covers a broad range of fundamental topics relevant to the study of complex systems. The course work involves weekly readings and discussion of papers and selections from books. The readings focus on "classics" in the complex systems literature, in order to give students a broad, general understanding for the variety of work that falls under the rubric of complex systems. Topics to be covered will include evolutionary systems, self-organized criticality, measures of complexity, approaches to modeling complex adaptive systems, and emergence. Authors to be covered include Holland, Axelrod, Kauffman, Bak, and Gell-Mann.

Classwork and grades: Grading will be based on participation in the discussions and on two papers:
