Description: 

Explores quantitative analysis and probabilistic forecasting of the behavior of complex nonlinear natural and human systems. Methods of analysis included fractals to quantify spatial, size, and temporal scaling and chaos to study sensitivity to initial conditions and feedback. Modeling includes self-organization and cellular automata. Systems studied include seismology, chemistry, biochemistry, hydrology, medicine, geography, and coupled human and natural systems.
