“Introduction to Complexity” course taught by Melanie Mitchell of Sante Fe Institute is launching January 28, 2013. It is designed over 10 weeks but is self-paced with no prereqs. In my opinion, Melanie Mitchell has written one of the clearest books on complexity (Complexity: A Guided Tour) that I absolutely adore and use in my graduate course. It will discuss social networks but also other areas of complexity such as fractals, chaos, agent based models and information theory. Who is game? Who can pass up free PLUS getting taught by Mitchell? Awesome deal.
