This project is funded under the EPSRC Novel Computation Initiative and aims to bring together researchers from a wide variety of disciplines to investigate generic computational techniques to study and understand complex dynamic systems. It is one of a number of research clusters set up in this area.
Many systems can be thought of as local objects - autonomes, or agents - which interact with a spatially distributed set of neighbours and with some overall external environment or forcing. It is envisaged that novel computational approaches will be particularly important in areas where the external environment is currently treated by mean field approximations. This project will bring together researchers from different disciplines with the aims of (a) transfering experience of novel computing and (b) allowing exchange of ideas and analysis techniques. See the project overview for more details.
- Next year's meeting is scheduled for the first week in September 2006. It will be more like a conference, with invited speakers.
- The NANIA summer meeting was held in Edinburgh in October 2005
- A new version of a manuscript on the Ecosse model ("Evolution of stabilising weak links in food webs") by Graeme Ackland and Ian Gallagher is available (pdf).
