An interdisciplinary initiative
Indian Institute of Technology Madras
The aim of the center is to provide a common platform for researchers from different disciplines and contribute to the development of new techniques and tools for mathematical modelling and analysis of complex dynamical systems. This include problems in social dynamics, climate science, neuroscience, biological systems, multi-physics systems and active flows.
In addition to enhancing to fundamental understanding of the universal features, which contribute to similar phenomena across a diversity of systems, the effort will also focus on translating into delivering technology that is useful in industrial and societal contexts.
This center is envisaged as an interdisciplinary center drawing on expertise from science, engineering and humanities disciplines to develop the expertise and synergy required for the proposed outcomes.
