From the preface:
This is an introductory textbook concerning the options and strategies of mathematical/computational
modeling and research built within the rising interdisciplinary box of complex
systems technological know-how. complicated structures may be informally outlined as networks of many
interacting elements that can come up and evolve via self-organization. Many realworld
systems might be modeled and understood as complicated structures, equivalent to political
organizations, human cultures/languages, nationwide and overseas economies, stock
markets, the net, social networks, the worldwide weather, meals webs, brains, physiological
systems, or even gene regulatory networks inside a unmarried cellphone; basically, they
are far and wide. In all of those structures, a huge quantity of microscopic components
are interacting with one another in nontrivial methods, the place very important info is living in
the relationships among the elements and never inevitably in the elements themselves. It
is consequently vital to version and learn how such interactions shape and function in
order to appreciate what's going to emerge at a macroscopic scale within the system.
