Scope of the Semester

 

The Thematic Einstein Semester The Mathematics of Complex Social Systems: Past, Present, and Future aims at unlocking the potential for mathematical modeling and reasoning within the extremely large and diversified fields of study that constitute modern Social Sciences and the Humanities. It shall bring together young researchers and experienced scholars from mathematics and other disciplines to focus on complex social systems, with a two-fold focus on agent-based models (ABMs) and data-driven methods. The TES will consist of specific events, continuous activities over the semester, and research visits.

Opening Day (25 April 2022)

To kick off the TES, the opening day will introduce a spectrum of approaches to mathematical analysis of past and present social systems. Also, it will present a few characteristic data sets that shall be objects of study in the TES. We invite interested students to participate and investigate these data sets throughout the semester in small interdisciplinary groups. Further information can be found here.

The opening day will be held in conjunction with Workshop I.
