Santa Fe Institute Complexity Classes Online Starting Sept 29 2014

The Santa Fe Institute is offering three free courses starting on September 29, 2014:

  • Introduction to Complexity is a re-offering of the popular introductory course, taught by Melanie Mitchell, with no prerequisites.   It’s appropriate for anyone with an interest in the field.
  • Nonlinear Dynamics:  Mathematical and Computational Approaches is a new course, taught by SFI’s Liz Bradley.  It will cover dynamics and chaos from both theoretical and practical perspectives, with emphasis on mathematical and computational tools.
  • Mathematics for Complex Systems is not so much a “course” as a set of mathematics tutorials covering the math topics most relevant to complex systems science.  If you sign up for this course, you’ll be informed when new units are ready

You can get more information on these courses at .

In addition to free courses, the Santa Fe site offers useful educational resources for complex systems under the “Explore” tab, including a glossary, a collection of web resources, and a set of course syllabi.  Check it out at

Complexity Explorer is a community project and the help of the community is vital for building it.  Get involved in this project by volunteering to submit additional resources, help create subtitles for videos, or even make a small donation to our efforts.  You can find information on all this at
