{ rule110 reading club of the University of Osnabrück, Germany }

Welcome to the home of the first rule110 reading club.

We are a couple of students from the University of Osnabrück,
that meet regularly to read books on complex dynamic systems.
The books we read will be available at the rule110 fuzzylib.
If you want to join, just stop by at one of our club meetings.
