Before the advent of quantum mechanics in the early 20th century, most scientists believed that it should be possible to predict the behavior of any object in the universe simply by understanding the behavior of its constituent parts. For instance, if one could write down the equations of motion for every atom in a system, it should be possible to solve those equations (with the aid of a sufficiently large computing device) and make accurate predictions about that system’s future.

This course has enriched my understanding in science. It has also encouraged me to do research in the field of Emergent Phenomena in future. Thanks to respected professors who made this possible.
A very good course in introducing advanced concepts in a simple way and have performed the spirit of multidisciplinary research very well.
I can read about this. But I'll give it 5 stars because they deliver it nicely.
Very good none technical introduction to emergent phenomena.
