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. “
