|Recommended for:||Graduate School of Information (2・1.5 hours / session One session / week 15 weeks / semester)|
This course will consist of lectures on programming and hands-on practice. This course will introduce and discuss several computational models from a broad range of complex systems sciences. Students will learn hands-on research methods based on constructive approaches including construction, implementation, experimentation, visualization, analysis, and reconsideration of models, using the programming language Python.
The students who enter the Department of Complex Systems Science in the Graduate School of Information Science come from a variety of different academic backgrounds. Thus, I organize the course so that those who are not familiar with programming or constructive approaches can enjoy the fun of studying them, and so that those who have been studying other relevant areas can attain new knowledge and experience, as listed below:
In order to put the above principles into practice, this class will incorporate suitable hands-on practice (and homework) into the lectures.
The constructive approach, which calculates on a computer models that allow us to perceive the essential characteristics of organisms and social phenomena, is one of the essential research methods in the Science of Complex Systems.
The aim of this course is to give students the essential knowledge and techniques relating to the use of computers and programming required to construct complex models and perform experiments and analysis
As needed, an introductory text to Python may be necessary.
