A classic overview of the science of complexity from the prestigious Santa Fe Institute.
There has been a remarkable growth in collaborative academic research focused on complexity in recent years. One of the greatest challenges is to discover which features are essential and which shared by all the seemingly disparate systems that are described as complex. This book describes current views on this subject held by various eminent scholars associated with the Santa Fe Institute, including Murray Gell-Mann, Brian Arthur, Stuart Kauffman, John Holland, and Kenneth Arrow.
George A. Cowan is Founding President Emeritus of the Santa Fe Institute. David Pines is Research Professor in the department of Physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and is also a co-founder of the Santa Fe Institute. David Meltzer is a visiting assistant professor of Physics at Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond.
