    "Fractals are scale-free, in the sense that there is not a typical length or time scale that captures their features.  A tree, for example, is made up of branches, off of which are smaller branches, off of which are smaller branches, and so on.  Fractals thus look similar, regardless of the scale at which they are viewed.  Fractals are often characterized by their dimension.  You will learn what it means to say that an object is 1.6 dimensional and how to calculate the dimension for different types of fractals."

It Takes Complexity to Perceive Complexity - Campus Co-Evolve - 0 views

  •  
    We are living in the midst of humankind's manifold crises, in a time of unprecedented change. Some call this era The Big Shift, Jump Time or The Great Transition. Out of the turbulence of this transformation, the world that will emerge will most likely be very different from what we know. Whether what unfolds will be for better or worse is up to us. Not up to us individually, but up to all of us who care for it.

Platform Design Toolkit Leverage the potential of the Ecosystem Age! - 0 views

  •  
    We empower shapers to build platforms and organizations that mobilize ecosystems for the age of complexity, chaos and interdependence.

Going Critical - Melting Asphalt - 0 views

  •  
    This is our topic for today: the way things move and spread, somewhat chaotically, across a network. Some examples to whet the appetite: Infectious diseases jumping from host to host within a population Memes spreading across a follower graph on social media A wildfire breaking out across a landscape Ideas and practices diffusing through a culture Neutrons cascading through a hunk of enriched uranium

OneZoom Tree of Life Explorer - 0 views

  •  
    An interactive map of the evolutionary relationships between 2,123,179 species of life on our planet. Each leaf on the tree represents a species and the branches show how they are connected through evolution. Discover your favourites, see which species are under threat, and wonder at 105,223 images on a single page.

Themes: Complex Time - Adaptation, Aging, Arrow of Time | Santa Fe Institute - 0 views

  •  
    Time in complex systems operates concurrently at different scales, runs at multiple rates, and integrates the function of numerous connected systems. We describe these processes as "complex time" as opposed to the simple, regular clock time of physical phenomena. In complex time age includes explicitly the coupling between information gain and information loss.

Complexity Explorables | Complexity Explorables - 0 views

  •  
    This site is designed for people interested in complex systems and complex dynamical processes. Complexity Explorables hosts different collections of interactive illustrations of models for complex systems in physics, mathematics, biology, chemistry, social sciences, neuroscience, epidemiology, network science and ecology. Topics include pattern formation, synchronization, critical phenomena, chaotic dynamics, evolutionary dynamics, fractals, collective behavior, reaction-diffusion systems and more.

Intelligent Management - 0 views

  •  
    Since 1996, Intelligent Management has partnered with scientists, technologists and innovation centers in North America and Europe to deliver systemic management solutions for our age of complexity. Our unique Network of Projects organizational design has been chosen to build a global platform for a digital and decentralized economy based on transparency, win-win and fair sharing of economic gains.

NetSciEd - 1 views

  •  
    NetSciEd has evolved in response to escalating activity in the field of network science, and the urgent need for citizens to be able to access the field through education channels. NetSciEd reflects the multiple efforts underway in pursuit of this goal: intensive workshops for students, introductory workshops open to the public, participation in public science festivals, professional development for teachers, development of network literacy principles, curriculum development, YouTube videos and online courses - plus much more, all of which you will find here.

    About the Course: We have re-opened our popular introductory course indefinitely; all units will be open once the course is launched. You will be able to complete this course at any time of the year and receive a certificate. There will be a course instructor offering office hours and monitoring the forums to support your complexity learning journey.

The Schumacher Institute - An independent think tank - 2 views

  •  
    The Schumacher Institute is a think tank. We believe that our planet faces complex social, economic and environmental crises that are hard to solve, however, we are optimistic that solutions can be found. We apply systems thinking to explore and test sustainable options, which acknowledge the complexity of our world. We see social justice as integral to sustainability and look for answers that are fair to all, within the limits the Earth can sustain.

    The Santa Fe Institute is a nonprofit, independent research center that leads global research in complexity science. SFI scientists seek the shared patterns and regularities across physical, biological, social, and technological systems that give rise to complexity-in any system in which its collective, system-wide behaviors cannot be understood merely by studying its parts or individuals in isolation. Insights from complexity science are increasingly useful in understanding questions far beyond the boundaries of traditional academic disciplines-urban sustainability, disease networks, and financial risk, to name a few.
