Group Mission

We live in a highly connected and strongly coupled world, and are surrounded by a large diversity of complex systems. All these systems have one thing in common: they process information. We aim to understand this information processing in such dynamic multi-level complex systems.


“Nature is a Complex System that processes information. Computational Science aims to make the complexity of those systems tractable.”
