Self Organization: Nature's Intelligent Design
Wednesday, July 10, 2013
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.
