Abstract.  "Wildness" is a mathematically precise phenomenon at research frontiers in computational complexity, mathematics (specifically, geometry and representation theory), and quantum entanglement. Understanding wildness is thus an important step towards developing rigorous techniques for understanding complex systems. At a high level, the main focus of the workshop will be: In what ways can a system be more than the sum of its parts? Although wildness is primarily about static mathematical structures that would not traditionally be thought of as "complex adaptive systems," a better understanding of this mathematical phenomenon is an important step towards developing rigorous mathematical theories for the description and understanding of complex adaptive systems arising in physics, biology, and society.
