Interacting Particle Systems
by Stefan Grosskinsky
Publisher: University of Warwick 2009
Number of pages: 56
Interacting particle systems (IPS) are models for complex phenomena involving a large number of interrelated components. Examples exist within all areas of natural and social sciences, such as traffic flow on highways, pedestrians or constituents of a cell, opinion dynamics, spread of epidemics or fires, reaction diffusion systems, crystal surface growth, chemotaxis, financial markets...

Multidimensional calculus, linear analysis, linear operators, vector algebra, ordinary differential equations. Directed at first year graduate students in engineering and undergraduates who wish to become better prepared for graduate studies.
by Marcus Pivato - Trent University
An introduction to social choice theory, which uses mathematics to study the strengths/weaknesses of voting systems, arbitration schemes, and other methods of group decision making. Lots of pictures, requires only basic linear algebra.
by Viatcheslav Vinogradov - CERGE-EI
Simple recipes for solving problems students might face in their studies of economics. The main goal was to refresh students' knowledge of mathematics rather than teach them math from scratch, BA level mathematics is required.
