Our world has an abundance of so-called complex systems. These are typically large collections of connected elements that influence each other. In this hybrid course, we combine examples across physics, the life sciences, socio-economic sciences and humanities with an introduction to basic mathematical tools to learn a complex systems way of thinking. The main aim is to show students how complex systems science is applied by Utrecht University researchers to challenging societal problems.
