All fields of human endeavor include considerations of mathematical scaling, either to solve or understand the nature of problems. During each meeting of this series we will have a presentation from an expert in a field. We will then break into small groups to approach the topics discussed through the perspective of mathematical scaling. 

Guest facilitators include: Don Beck (expert in large-scale social systems), Prof. Richard Muller (author of “Physics for Future Presidents”), Peter Burgess (inventor of “TrueValue Metrics”), Diana Senechal (educator, author of “Republic of Noise”)
