The Center for the Study of Complex Systems (CSCS) is a multi- and interdisciplinary program at the University of Michigan designed to encourage and facilitate research and education in the general area of nonlinear, dynamical and adaptive systems.
Its more than 50 participating faculty represent nearly every college of the University. Researchers at the Center recognize that many different types of systems that include self regulation, feedback or adaptation in their dynamics possess similar underlying structure despite their apparent differences. Their goal is to exploit these deep structural similarities to transfer methods of analysis and understanding from one field to another.
