      Supplementary Description: What makes the difference in the achievement of prestige, popularity and fame? Is there any pattern behind success? For example, why an hashtag on twitter becomes popular, a song enters the hit parade, or a scientific paper becomes highly cited? The course will review quantitative studies aimed at measuring, predicting and understanding performance in social competitive arenas, ranging from social media to financial markets, from professional sports to scientific and technological innovation.
