Classical mathematics (calculus/differential equations/statistics) has been the cornerstone of our understanding of the physical world for the last 250 years.  But there are many areas of life in which our classical models have not been able to penetrate.  New models are needed to understand such phenomena as traffic flow, the spread of forest fires, the fragility of communications networks, the spread of infectious disease within a social network, the origin of cooperation in a society of insects or of people and many other problems in the biological and social sciences.  In this talk we will look at new mathematical models of the world that have emerged in the last 15 years and get a glimpse of the mathematical methods our students will use in their careers.
