Thematic semester on Network Dynamics and Resilience

Network Dynamics in the Social, Economic, and Financial Sciences

Workshop - November 5 - 8, 2019 - Politecnico di Torino

Organised by the Department of Mathematical Sciences - Politecnico di Torino
in the framework of the Excellence Project

It has been recognized as the complexity of social, economic, and financial systems does not depend on their large scale only, but it rather emerges from the architecture and the nature of interactions within the units composing these systems. This workshop will gather some of the leading scientist presenting the most recent successful network dynamics models in this field.
The emergence of global features, learning phenomena, resilience with respect to shocks, optimization, and control are some of the topics that will be covered.
