Mathematics, Modelling and Simulation of Complex Systems


Transdisciplinary Research Area Mathematics, Modelling and Simulation of Complex Systems (TRA Modelling)


The creation of models is at the heart of many quantitative sciences. Nowadays, computers are able to process increasingly large data sets in decreasingly short time to create scientific forecasting models. A complex world like ours can certainly not be explained by simple models. The understanding of how complex systems, with many components that interact with each other, actually work, is one of the biggest challenges of our time, arising in numerous areas of science and technology.


In a combination of classical observational methods, data simulation and creative spirit, scientists from a broad range of disciplines create models that not only describe complex systems, but are able to analyze their behavior.
