The Centre for Computational and Complexity Sciences (CCCS) at BML Munjal University aims to foster the research collaborations in cutting-edge areas of complex systems. The centre will be focused on achieving scientific breakthroughs by addressing the challenges from the perspective of complex systems. The centre aims to facilitate cross disciplinary research and educational opportunities in the area of non-linear and adaptive systems.
Systems are considered complex when their dynamics cannot be easily predicted or explained as a linear summation of the individual dynamics of its components. Different components of the complex system interact with each other and its behavior is influenced by their dependencies and relationship. The behavior of the complex system analogues the famous quote by Aristotle “The whole is more than the sum of its parts”. Thus complex systems study how relationships between different parts contribute to the collective behavior of the entire system and how the system as a whole interacts with its environment. Complex systems aim to observe and explore the behavior of divergent systems such as global climate, human brain, transportation/communication systems, social networks and economic systems, etc. These systems possess the intrinsic properties of non-linearity, feedback loops, self-organization, and emergence.
We are looking forward to solving challenging socio-economic issues such as, not limited to, energy consumption, climate change and economic complexity. The centre with diverse backgrounds such as economics, mathematics, social science, biology, physics, machine learning, complex system theory, data science and geospatial science, renewable energy systems, and system engineering will work together to shape the objectives of the Centre.
Members of the CCCS come from a variety of fields, including economics, physics, biomedical engineering, soft computing, data science, geospatial science, clean and sustainable energy, governance, and collaborate with renowned experts from around the world to determine the objectives of the centre.
