Introduction to Complexity: Properties Common to Complex Systems

These are videos from the Introduction to Complexity course hosted on Complexity Explorer. You will 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.

This course was developed by professor Melanie Mitchell, and is based on her book Complexity: A Guided Tour.
