Foundations and Methods

Characteristics of complex adaptive systems (e.g. tipping points, emergence, resilience) are found in many of today’s most pressing societal challenges. Exploring the dynamics of complex systems from a fundamental perspective is therefore crucial to progress our reasoning about the effects of our intervention strategies. At the IAS we develop novel algorithmic, computational and descriptive methods with the aim to bridge the gap between the disciplines and to get a grip on complex system dynamics.
