Self Organization: Nature's Intelligent Design

Date
Wednesday, July 10, 2013
Time
7 p.m.
Description
This talk will provide examples of self-organization in nature and will describe six simple computer models that can replicate the features of these patterns. The models typically produce fractal spatial structure and chaotic temporal dynamics characterized by power laws and unpredictability. The work has application to fields such as physics, ecology, political science, economics, sociology, and art. Live videostream at biotech.wisc.edu/webcams.
