An Intensive Course
This year's case study: The modern science of human aging

October 4-8, 1999, Boston Area

A coherent program of study and the development of a common 
language base for complex systems concepts and methods

Format: A one semester course in a one week format.

Subject Matter includes:

Multiple scales, statistical methods, information, time 
series analysis, nonlinear dynamics, computer modeling, 
networks, informatics, pattern formation, computational 
paradigm, evolutionary paradigm, interdependence, adaptation, 
emergence and complexity.

Demonstration of the application of complex systems methods 
will be made through a case study focusing on the aging of 
human physiology: System structure, dynamic response, 
function, physical degradation of non-equilibrium structure, 
heart rate dynamics, neural systems, bone tissue and genetic 

Target Audience:

This course is meant for graduate students, post-doctoral 
fellows and faculty who would like to gain an understanding 
of the fundamentals of complex systems, and develop
methodological tools for conducting research in their 
respective fields. Aging is being used as a case study 
to demonstrate the use of complex systems strategies.


There are a large number of full scholarships for the course.
