Complex Systems

Complex Systems Research Cluster

In the last decade, there has been an extraordinary confluence of mathematics, biology, computational sciences and physics, leading to universal concepts that impact on systems as diverse as the stock market and the weather. Complex systems science arose from such interdisciplinary collaborations.

The purpose of this multidisciplinary umbrella research group is to promote interaction between research groups in the School of Mathematics and Statistics.
