Description: 21st century scientists increasingly rely on computational models and strategies.  The social sciences in particular are benefitting from new modeling techniques, improved computing power, new ways of measuring social phenomena, and quantitative methods drawn from physics, chemistry, biology, economics, and other disciplines. As a result, important questions previously inaccessible to quantitative exploration are now reachable.

SFI's REU program provides an opportunity for young scientists from many disciplines to explore what a social science perspective brings to other fields and how traditionally quantitative disciplines can contribute to the social sciences. Each REU participant works with one or more SFI faculty mentors on a specific, mutually selected projects focusing on the computational properties of complex systems with particular, but not exclusive, emphasis on the social sciences. Possible focus areas include emergence in decision- making and cognitive systems; network structure and dynamics; cities, scaling, and sustainability; risk, markets, and innovation; and the evolution of languages.
