Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) The COMPLEXYS institute of UMONS carries out research on complex systems, composed of numerous organisations interacting on a local level and producing global properties. Examples of such complex systems are the brain, an economic market and biological ecosystems. They are all the object of multidisciplinary research: nonlinear physics, mathematics and computer science come together to analyse, model and simulate numerous complex systems within exact sciences, engineering sciences, life sciences and human and social sciences. The research from the COMPLEXYS institute can be placed into two categories: upstream, this is the study of fundamental theoretical tools; downstream, more applicative research using existing models and techniques to analyse complex systems whose function is not yet fully understood, for example the organisation of smart cities, education systems, the evolution of software systems and the structure of the universe and its constituents...
