After completing the course, the student is able to:|
-translate a Complex System to a model which can be analysed.
-use mathematical tools to give (approximate) solutions of the model.
-use computer simulations to analyse the model.
-critically compare both methods.
The textbook we will use is "Introduction to the modelling and analysis of Complex Systems", by H. Sayama. It is online |
The topics that will be covered are:
Systems with a small number of variables
-basics of modelling.
-Dynamical systems in discrete time.
-Dynamicals systems in continuous time.
-Analysing dynamical systems with mathematical and simulation methods.
Systems with many variables
-Simulations using the Python language.
-Complex systems on networks.
