Professor
Department: 

Jonathan Smith works on the development of mathematical models for complex and biological systems. The models are simplified by using appropriate space and time parameters intrinsic to each level of the system, and by taking the most random models possible, subject to constraints imposed from the user's knowledge and required level of detail.
