Santa Fe Institute

Research Experiences for Undergraduates

Edward A. Knapp Undergraduate Fellows

SFI's research seeks to understand both the common features of complex systems and the individual systems themselves. Each undergraduate fellow works with an Institute faculty mentor on an individual project focusing on the mathematical modeling of complex systems. Students gain qualitative insights into complex systems using a full spectrum of integrated mathematical and computational techniques. Models are drawn from a variety of sources including epidemic models, social networks, evolutionary biology, urban growth, and statistical physics.
