      Supplementary Description: Complexity deals with the structural, behavioral, and organizational properties that emerge from the unsupervised local interactions of a multitude of elementary units. During this courses we will study the mathematical and computational techniques that have been developed to describe and understand such properties. In doing so we will always discuss the math/algorithmic side in the context of specific examples; We will touch upon a number of important and fascinating sub-areas: linearity and non-linearity, chaos, self-similarity, stochastic processes, self-organization and network theory.
