Pr. L.J. Dubé to speak at Western University

Pr. L.J. Dubé will give a talk, entitled “ A Network Approach to Complex Systems—complexity made simple, … but not simpler “ at the Physics and Astronomy department of Western University, on Thursday, the 6th of October, 2016.

What follows is an excerpt from the full abstract, which can be found here.

We will present complex systems through the looking glass of network science, a new field, perhaps only 15 years old, that gather the combined expertise of statistical physics, graph theory and nonlinear dynamics


we will focus on describing how [the common features of complex systems] emerge from simple principles in an attempt to illuminate their past and to predict their future . Utopia or reality? The story will tell.
