Pattern formation and Self-Organization

In this course, we will introduce key cases of pattern formation and self-organization in physical and biological systems, as well as engineering. From crystal formation to robot swarms and embryonic development, we will discuss how these systems develop organized spatial structures and present new major challenges in these topics.
