Celso Grebogi Minicourse on Complex Systems





September 23 & 24, 2013

Venue: ICTP-SAIFR, Auditorium of Instituto de Física Teórica, UNESP, São Paulo

The minicourse will be given by Professor Celso Grebogi from the Institute for Complex Systems and Mathematical Biology, University of Aberdeen, Scotland, UK and will consist of three lectures on the topics of:

Lecture 1: Population Dynamics
Lecture 2: Systems Biology
Lecture 3: Quantum Chaos



The aim of the event is to present and discuss ongoing research in the area of Complexity, and its applications for regional interests. There will be time allotted for short presentations by participants, and the minicourse will be closed by a Roundtable Discussion on the future of Complexity Science.

There is no registration fee. Some funds are available for local and travel support for participants and applications for participation should be filled out using the Online Application before the application deadline of September 7.

The tentative schedule of the minicourse is:

Monday, September 23, 14:00-15:00 – Lecture 1  [video I] [video II]
