3rd European Summer School on Mathematical Modelling of Complex Systems
Rick Quax and Omri Har-Shemesh attended the “3rd European Summer School for Mathematical Modeling of Complex Systems“, which was held in Heraklion, Crete between the 15th and 27th of July 2013. The lectures in the summer school covered the foundations of complexity science, complex networks (theory andapplication), complex quantum systems and complexity in the social and biological sciences. The school also included a practical computer lab where they could explore non-linear systems first-hand.
In addition to the science covered, the program also included a talk by a PRL editor about publishing in PRL and the new PRX journal, and different aspects of Cretan culture. A visit to the Faistos palace with Prof. Gareth Owens which explained about the Minoan civilisation and the Faistos Disc, a pottery festival in the village of Thrapsano and even some Cretan dancing lessons.
