Topics in Complex Systems (MSc level course, Block 1)

In Fall 2017, I am teaching part of the NBI graduate course "Topics in Complex Systems", which is aimed at MSc students of physics and related disciplines. The topics I teach include critical phenomena and various techniques to explore them. As a model system, we use the classical Ising model.

Topics include:

Mean field theory, 1D transfer matrix method, Low and high temperature series expansion, Monte Carlo (Metropolis) method, 1D renormalization group method.

This course also includes lectures on complex networks, interfaces, agent-based models, and self organization, etc. (instructor: Kim Sneppen).
