Innovation Through Lateral Connections - recognizes that many advances in civilization and the sciences occur when people, either singly or in groups, have an a-ha moment and realize how to apply advances in one discipline to another discipline. The course provides both theory and examples to illuminate the approach. Innovation through lateral connections is relevant to the social sciences, gaming, economics, engineering, and the physical sciences.
Approximate Calculation - develops skills to perform back of the envelope calculations based on making plausible assumptions and deriving simple models. This course has applicability in situations where a rough in the ballpark answer is needed given limited resources (time and money). Approximate calculation also has value in cases where there is a solution but it is unknowable or not measurable. The course provides both theory and examples to illuminate the approach. Approximate calculation is relevant to the social sciences, gaming, economics, engineering, and the physical sciences.
Network Theory - applies the new, emerging theory of networks to the organization and operation of biological, sociological, and human-designed systems. Network theory is based on the mathematics of graph theory. Topics include the phenomena of six degrees of separation, small worlds, the organization of the Internet, the power law of networks, and scale-free networks. Network theory is applicable to the biological sciences, social sciences, gaming, economics, engineering, and the physical sciences.
