Welcome to the Complex Systems Institute (CSI) at UNC Charlotte. The CSI is a multi-disciplinary, university-wide research center that provides an intellectual home for researchers who cross disciplinary boundaries in search of holistic answers to challenging questions stemming from the dynamic nature of non-linear, adaptive, self-organizing systems with feedback loops, underlying network structure, and emergent properties. The current CSI faculty come from areas as diverse as Computing, Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, the Humanities, and Arts.
The Complex Systems Institute (CSI) brings together academia, industry, and federal agencies to advance computing simulation, analysis, and modeling. Tools and applications developed by CSI members help analysts model, visualize, and understand dynamic man-made, natural, and social systems, including their second- and third-order effects and unintended consequences.
