Notes on David Woods's Resilience Engineering short course

These are my personal, unofficial notes on David Woods's Resilience Engineering short couse.

2016 lectures

A set of lectures from 2016 are hosted on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLvlZBj1NU_ikTy1ot30EbEbYMAoBf9eAt.

2015 lectures

A set of lectures from 2015, which were a collaboration between Ohio State University's Cognitive Systems Engineering Laboratory, O'Reiliy Media and the Resilience Engineering Association, were originally linked from OSU (internet archive link).

The individual lectures are still accessible at the links below:

My notes

These are the notes I took watching the lectures. I took a combination of handwritten notes (using my reMarkable tablet) and typed notes:

Papers

Woods mentions several readings in his lectures, but as of this writing there isn't a publicly available list of them. I've tried to guess based on his description of them in the lectures.
