Item description for From Cells to Societies by Alexander S. Mikhailov...

This book shows how, by rather simple models, we can gain remarkable insights into the behavior of complex systems. It is devoted to the discussion of functional self-organization in large populations of interacting active elements. The possible forms of self-organization in such systems range from coherent collective motions in the physical coordinate space to the mutual synchronization of internal dynamics, the development of coherently operating groups, the rise of hierarchical structures, and the emergence of dynamical networks. Such processes play an important role in biological and social phenomena. The authors have chosen a series of models from physics, biochemistry, biology, sociology and economics, and will systematically discuss their general properties. The book addresses researchers and graduate students in a variety of disciplines, such as physics, chemistry, biology and the social sciences.

Reviews - What do customers think about From Cells to Societies?

Cells and societies  Aug 5, 2003
This is an excellent introductory text to an area that post graduates often find confusing. The authors use an integrated approach to self-organisation in cell based systems using the 'informal' algebra of theoretical physics rather than the technically cluttered formal proofs in mathematical texts. In this way they review the whole world of automata work within 280 pages of a small format book. The further reading section at the end of each chapter is more of a literature review and therefore very helpful for the student wishing to progress further.

This is a work to be read carefully, Mikhailov and Calenbuhr write very precisely (e.g. maxwell's demon takes 5 pages where other authors would have needed a full chapter for a more discursive treatment)but certainly none the worse for that.
