June 2016 – Course “Qualitative Mathematical Modelling of Complex Systems” (ICM-CSIC, Barcelona, Spain)

We organized a specialized course about Qualitative Mathematical Modelling of Complex Systems at the Institute of Marine Science (ICM-CSIC), Barcelona, Spain.

Qualitative mathematical modelling was introduced as a means to understand and predict the dynamics of complex biological and socio-economic systems. The technique poses the question: if all we know of a system is the general nature of relationships between species and environmental and human variables, but not the precise intensity of these interactions, then what do we know?
