Self-Organized Criticality

Friday, October 24, 2014, 2:30pm
Ungar Building Room 402


We'll discuss what self-organized criticality means with some real-world examples. To add mathematical flavor, we'll discuss a simple model of self-organized criticality, namely, the Bak-Sneppen model. Simple as this model may look, it is very difficult to prove rigorously results on its long-time behavior. Then we'll discuss some modified models and probable ideas and methods to analyze these models.
