We will study examples of where the way objects or people are interconnected may help
understand they interact. We will look at mathematical models of networks and of some
interactions. This is a gentle introduction to apsects of mathematical and computational
modeling, as well as to algorithmic thinking and to some ideas in Economics.
This is a first draft, subject to changes depending on class preparation and interest. We may not cover all this material, and I may include other topics.
