Doing good Science with videogames

Lucas Barberis is professor of  physics at Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, Argentina, and researcher at the Argentinian National Research Council of Science and Technology (CONICET). He is currently Fellow-in-Residence at CY AS, invited by LPTM laboratory.

Bring your laptop, and we will play with some "video games" intended to study multidisciplinary problems.
We start with a simple "voter model" to investigate how neighbors influence elections and a "Fire in the forest" model to see some emergent properties. Investigate Hotelling’s law (1929) on where it is more profitable to place an store. We will explore Pareto's Law addressing why "The rich get richer and the poor get poorer". We will study the propagation of a virus in a population, the synchronization of fireflies, and the formation of a flock.
Finally, we study the influence of Cancer Stem Cells on tumor progression, which is one of the subjects of my research.

You really have to bring your laptop, this is a practical lecture. As possible get downloaded this file: https://ccl.northwestern.edu/netlogo/6.3.0/
