An interview based study of pioneering experiences in teaching and learning Complex Systems in Higher Education

    Due to the interdisciplinary nature of complex systems as a field, students studying complex systems at University level have diverse disciplinary backgrounds. This brings challenges (e.g. wide range of computer programming skills) but also opportunities (e.g. facilitating interdisciplinary interactions and projects) for the classroom. However, there is little published regarding how these challenges and opportunities are handled in teaching and learning Complex Systems as an explicit subject in higher education, and how this differs in comparison to other subject areas. We seek to explore these particular challenges and opportunities via an interview-based study of pioneering teachers and learners (conducted amongst the authors) regarding their experiences. We compare and contrast those experiences, and analyse them with respect to the educational literature. Our discussions explored: approaches to curriculum design, how theories/models/frameworks of teaching and learning
informed decisions and experience, how diversity in student backgrounds was addressed, and assessment task design. We found a striking level of commonality in the issues expressed as well as the strategies to handle them, for example a significant focus on problem-based learning, and the use of major student-led creative projects for both achieving and assessing learning outcomes.

Social Mixing and Home˙˙Work Carpooling

Shared mobility is widely recognized for its contribution in reducing carbon footprint, traffic congestion, parking needs and transportation-related costs in urban and suburban areas. In this context, the use of carpooling in home-work commute is particularly appealing for its potential of lessening the number of cars and kilometers traveled, consequently reducing major causes of traffic in cities. Accordingly, most of the carpooling algorithms are optimized for reducing total travel time, cost, and other transportation-related metrics. In this paper, the authors analyze the benefits of carpooling from a new angle, posing it as a possible means for favoring social integration in the city by matching carpoolers taking into account some of their social characteristics. Building upon a recently introduced network-based approach to model ride-sharing opportunities, the authors define two social-related carpooling problems: how to maximize the number of rides shared between
people belonging to different social groups, and how to maximize the amount of time people spend together along the ride. For each of the problems, the authors provide corresponding optimal and computationally efficient solutions. The authors then demonstrate their approach on two data sets collected in the city of Pisa, Italy, and Cambridge, US, and quantify the potential social benefits of carpooling, and how they can be traded off with traditional transportation-related metrics. When collectively considered, the models, algorithms, and results presented in this paper broaden the perspective from which carpooling problems are typically analyzed to encompass multiple disciplines including urban planning, public policy, and social sciences.

Dynamic Structure of Competition Networks in Affordable Care Act Insurance Market

    "Stimulating competition is one of the main topics in most health care reform debates, and it has been a central issue in the Affordable Care Act in the United States since 2009. The goal of this paper is to use complex network methods to study dynamic and structure of competition under Affordable Care Act (ACA) and its evolution over time since its beginning until 2017. Using publicly available data, we construct a bipartite network of counties and insurance providers, create associated weighted single-mode networks, and analyze the evolution of network parameters that are related to competition and potential collusion in complex networks. These parameters have been previously tied to dynamics of collaboration and competition in earlier theoretical works. We argue that three parameters, namely network modularity, and eigenvector centrality mean and skewness are appropriate indicators of the overall competition in the insurance market. Based on these parameters, we show that
the level of systemic competition among insurers as a function of time is an inverse U-shape trend, and that competition has returned back to what it was at the very beginning of ACA, indicating an undesirable resilience in the national health care system."
