Complex adaptive systems
Description: Undergraduate students work with faculty mentors on an individual research project focused on some aspect of complex systems. SFI's broad program of research is aimed at understanding both the common features of complex systems and at comprehending the enormous diversity of specific examples. Possible focus areas include adaptive computation; computational aspects of complexity; energy and information in biological computation; scaling laws in complex phenomena; network structure and dynamics; robustness and innovation in biological and social systems; and the dynamics of human social interactions including state and market formation, economics as a complex system, and the evolution of language.

This program is highly individualized. Each student works with one or more faculty mentors on a specific, mutually selected project. The project may be based on a suggestion from the SFI mentor, an idea from the student intern, or a combination of the two.  The initial weeks of the program will be devoted to meeting potential mentors and determining the choice of project.

Please watch our website in late November 2004 for further details and application instructions.

This program is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation, as part of the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program.  Although NSF funding is restricted to US citizens and permanent residents, a modest level of funding from SFI's International Program is available to support undergraduates from selected international regions.  Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.

For further information about the program, please e-mail, or call (505) 946-2746.
