This course explores (at a lower division level) new concepts and methods of
complexity science (including computer modeling and simulation) as they
apply to the natural sciences, social sciences, and organization management.
The course number is: Management 19, Section 2.
Students need only the high school math and science required for admission
to UCLA. The reading materials for the course include reviews of the basics
of these subjects. There is no computer programming in the course and no
background in computer programming is needed. Computer exercises are no more
difficult than simple video games.
Topics include: "Complexity and the Economy", "Evolution & Extinction",
"Fractals", "Complexity in Management", "Multi-Agent Models & Emergence",
"Social Networks", and "Earthquakes".
Students from Freshmen to Seniors are encouraged to contact me with any
