Course Description

Nature is full of emergent problems. Beyond our Understandings, our efforts to solve these problems often cause additional problems. We should need revolutionary paradigm shifts in our practical approach from solving and approaching problems already appeared in the past to predicting and protecting the emergence of problems in the future.For this purpose, we should realize that there must be the same driving forces that generate the emerging problems on the one hand, and that allow us predict the problems which will appear in the future on the other hand. The same forces would be thus the double-edged sword: wonders and benefits.

The present workshop would, therefore, consider paradoxical way of thinking based on self-similarity and self-difference, often considered incompatible with each other. Using such a paradoxical way of thinking, we would like to explore simple principles beyond complexity. Actually, simple principles of complex dynamics could be deduced from the demand that underlying principles should be self-consistent, regardless of the space-time scale with which we are concerned.
