Complexity - Complex Systems Theory
Complex systems present problems both in mathematical modelling and philosophical foundations. The study of complex systems represents a new approach to science that investigates how relationships between parts give rise to the collective behaviors of a system and how the system interacts and forms relationships with its environment. The equations from which models of complex systems are developed generally derive from statistical physics, information theory and non-linear dynamics, and represent organized but unpredictable behaviors of natural systems that are considered fundamentally complex. wikipedia (en)

Q&A with Melanie Mitchell on SFI’s massive open online course in complexity

Q&A with Melanie Mitchell on SFI’s massive open online course in complexity | Complexity - Complex Systems Theory | Scoop.it

In early 2013, SFI External Professor Melanie Mitchell taught the Institute’s first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC).

The 16-week course, “Introduction to Complexity,” drew nearly 7,100 students. It marked the debut of a series of free courses and resources for complexity science SFI is providing through the online Complexity Explorer.

Approximately 1,200 participants finished the course successfully, a 17 percent completion rate (much higher than the MOOC average).

SFI is re-offering "Introduction to Complexity" beginning September 30, 2013. See the announcement for more information.

As Mitchell prepares to begin the course again, she offers her thoughts to SFI science writer Jenna Marshall about the first SFI MOOC and what the future holds for future online courses in complexity.
