Fractals and Scaling: Dimension of fractal “snowflake”

November 2, 2019 at 10:16 am | Articles, Blog | Ruben Talley -

In this video I’ll introduce a mathematical fractal known sometimes as the snowflake fractal and then we calculate its dimension. So the snowflake fractal like many fractals as we’ll see is made by an iterative process. So we start with a single dot. in the every step, I am gonna take the shape that I

Fractals and Scaling: Self-similar and scale-free

October 26, 2019 at 12:17 pm | Articles, Blog | Ruben Talley -

In this video, I’ll say more about self-similarity. So first just the reminder that self-similarity means that an object is made up of smaller copies of itself. So looks the same at different scales. And moreover, the self-similarity continues across many scales. So it’s not just like, oh here is a big thing there is

Introduction to Complexity: Properties Common to Complex Systems

October 23, 2019 at 1:14 pm | Articles, Blog | Ruben Talley -

Now that we’ve seen several examples of complex systems, let’s try to abstract some of the properties of the ones that we’ve seen. The first property is one that I’ve mentioned several times. Complex systems are composed of simple components, often called agents. That is, they’re simple, relative to the system as a whole. Another

Introduction to Complexity: Wrapping Up

October 22, 2019 at 7:15 pm | Articles, Blog | Ruben Talley -

^10.5 wrapping up We start off this course with the question What are Complex Systems? Our informal lanser ? was there are large network of simple interacting elements, which , following simple rules, produce emergent, collective, complex behavior. and I told you that this course would provide some insight into what these all means. the

Complexity, Information & AI

October 14, 2019 at 7:16 pm | Articles, Blog | Ruben Talley -

thank you very much great pleasure to be here good morning thanks for showing up yes I think we have a very exciting topic and I’m actually going to argue for something that is somewhat unusual I think for computer science circles how do we create more complexity because we would like ultimately to create

Fractals and Scaling: How many power laws are from phase transitions?

at 4:32 pm | Articles, Blog | Ruben Talley -

So we’ve seen that phase transitoins give rise to power laws at the critical point, at the point where the system goes from one phase to another where the transition occurs, many quantities of interest are distributed according to a power law, and that’s not the case on either side of that transition. So, power
