Competencies / intended learning achievements

Upon successful completion of the module, students will be able to
  • to explain essential properties of complex phenomena (emergence, bifurcations, chaos) on the basis of a mathematical description of nonlinear dynamical systems
  • to explain conditions for the transition to chaotic systems,
  • model different concepts of complex systems,
  • to analyze implemented concepts and system properties on concrete systems.
