    We need to start thinking about the world in a new way, because in some fundamental and essential respects our world has changed its character. We need to shift from seeing the world as composed largely of simple machines to seeing it as composed mainly of complex systems. Seeing the world as composed mainly of simple machines might have been appropriate several decades ago: we commonly thought of our economy, the natural resource systems we were exploiting, and our societies in general as machines that were analogous, essentially, to a windup clock.

  • A Complexity Science Primer

    A Complexity Science Primer

    This paper is called a 'primer' because it is intended to be a first step in understanding complexity science. In house painting, the primer or prime coat is not the finished surface. A room with a primer on the walls often looks worse than before the painting began.

    Nonlinearity in Complexity Science

    Complexity Science is experiencing a new vogue. The doubts of the previous decade (e.g. [Ho]) seem to have lost their force. Stephen Hawking declared that the 21st century “will be the century of complexity” [Ha]. Complexity Science is receiving serious funding from the European Commission, UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, and other agencies.

    Complex adaptive systems (CAS) – systems such as ecosystems, markets, and the immune system – pose some of the most important problems of the 21st century. Because CAS have no central executive and are made up of diverse agents that learn and adapt as they interact, they are difficult to steer. This difficulty persists even though we have large databases for many CAS.

    Complex adaptive systems - Igor Nikolic

    Igor Nikolic graduated in 2009 on his dissertation: co-evolutionary process for modelling large scale socio-technical systems evolution. He received his MSc as a chemical-- and bioprocess engineer at the Delft University of Technology. He spent several years as an environmental researcher and consultant at University of Leiden where he worked on life cycle analysis and industrial ecology. In his research he specializes in applying complex adaptive systems theory and agent based modeling.
