Lecture to discuss complex systems
Fisheries, forests and rangelands-even the transitional economies of Eastern Europe-are examples of systems that change or evolve over time. These complex systems, their properties and policy implications will be explored in the upcoming Gosnell lecture, "The Complexities of Complex Dynamical Systems" by J. Barkley Rosser Jr., the Kirby L. Kramer Jr. Professor of Economics at James Madison University of Harrisonburg VA. The talk, sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts Gosnell Professor, will be held 3-4 p.m., Friday, Sept. 21, in the College of Liberal Arts, room A201. A reception will follow. For more information, contact Amitrajeet Batabyal, Gosnell professor, at 5-2805 or Cassandra Shellman at 5-2057. This talk is for a general audience.
