This page is part of the Research on Complex Systems Group at the Institute for Theoretical Biology at
Humboldt University of Berlin.
The site is designed for people interested in complex dynamical processes. The Explorables are carefully chosen in such a way that the key elements of their behavior can be explored and explained without too much math (There are a few exceptions) and with as few words as possible.
Almost all interactive visualizations are implemented in D3 (Data Driven Documents). All the Explorables should work on your laptop or desktop computer and on Chrome, Safari and Firefox. Not sure about IE. Some of the Explorables may not work on mobile devices but hopefully the majority does.
Complexity Explorables is also designed as an instructive element of a course in Complex Systems in Biology that I teach.
The entire project was funded in part by bologna.lab in the context of the Digitalisierung der Lehre-Initiative
If you have ideas about specific systems that display interesting behavior and are straightforward to explain and that you want to see implemented, please feel free to contact me (email@example.com) I’ll try my best to accomodate it.
