Complex Systems and Informatics

Complex systems are systems made up of numerous components like molecules and agents. Interactions between these components bring out unexpectedly higher order and functions.
Complex systems science involves the application of the self-ordering processes of these orders and functions. In the Complex Systems and Informatics specialization, we seek to better understand the self-organizing processes of complex systems by studying phenomena such as artificial life, biological polymers, and nonequilibrium and nonlinear phenomena.
We will shed light on universal principles of information processing that are currently unknown by integrating theory, experiments, and calculations, and explore the applications of these principles. We will also work to develop revolutionary calculation methods for analyzing complex systems.
