Item description for Complex Systems: Chaos and Beyond, A Constructive Approach with Applications in Life Sciences by Kunihiko Kaneko...

Chaos in science has always been a fascinating realm since it challenges the usual scientific approach of reductionism. While carefully distinguishing between complexity, holism, randomness, incompleteness, nondeterminism and stochastic behaviour the authors show that, although many aspects of chaos have been phenomenologically understood, most of its defining principles are still difficult to grasp and formulate. Demonstrating that chaos escapes all traditional methods of description, the authors set out to find new methods to deal with this phenomenon and illustrate their constructive approach with many examples from physics, biology and information technology. While maintaining a high level of rigour, an overly complicated mathematical apparatus is avoided in order to make this book accessible, beyond the specialist level, to a wider interdisciplinary readership.

Reviews - What do customers think about Complex Systems: Chaos and Beyond, A Constructive Approach with Applications in Life Sciences?

Beyond Chaos but not Beyond Comprehension  Dec 22, 2000
This is a book I've long been waiting for. It gives an excellent overview of how the study of complex systems and chaos brings together various branches of science with a special focus on Physics and the Biological Sciences. The book is not too technical yet highly to the point with philosophical and fundamental discussions and thus of great value to both expert and novice.
