The CeNoS Kolloquium starts always at 16.30 s.t in Room 222 of the Institute for Applied Physics. From 16.15 on coffee is available.
Social insects as models for complex systems?
Social complexity is a central theme in complex system theory, biological sciences, and social sciences, and yet features that underlie it, and the evolutionary processes that shaped them, are not well understood. It is unclear what composition of features is needed for the emergence of a high-level social organization, and what are their relative weights. The broad diversity of social structures in insects (such as bees, ants, termites) presents a unique opportunity to study the features that underlie social complexity, and their evolutionary trajectories.
