Complex Systems A complex system is a special class of system that has the characteristic of complexity. Meaning it is composed of many diverse and autonomous components that interact in a nonlinear, networked fashion with the whole system evolving over time. There is no agreed upon definition for a complex system, but here are some [...]

Complexity Science Overview Complexity science is a new approach or method to science that has arisen over the past few decades to present an alternative paradigm to our standard method of scientific inquiry. It is based upon complexity theory and uses new tools of computer modeling and simulation to try and analyze the complex systems [...]

Complex Systems Overview

2018-06-19T21:04:29+00:00

Complex Systems Features Complex systems have the characteristic of being integrated systems which are composed of multiple, diverse parts that are highly interconnected, and capable of adaptation. Examples of this include financial markets with lots of different highly interconnected traders adapting to each other's behavior as they interact through buying and selling; or an ecosystem [...]

Self-Organization Overview

2018-06-19T21:12:57+00:00

Self-Organization Theory Self-organization theory deals with how global coordination within a system can result out of the local interactions between member parts.1 The theory of self-organization has grown out of many different areas from computer science to ecology and economics. Out of these areas has emerged a core set of concepts that are designed to [...]

Network Theory Overview

2018-06-19T21:13:08+00:00

Network Theory Network theory is a way of describing the world in terms of a model called a network that allows us to capture information about the relationship between things. We often describe the world in terms of objects or things and their properties. We talk about countries and their GDP, people, and their age, [...]

Nonlinear Systems Overview

2018-06-19T21:13:19+00:00

Nonlinear Systems Overview Nonlinear systems theory is a modeling framework for describing nonlinear phenomena. In math and science, a nonlinear system, in contrast to a linear system, is a system whose output is not directly proportional to its input due to the interconnections and interdependencies within the system. Linear Systems When we look around us [...]
