About the book
Nowadays the meaning of complexity is a subject of intense debate in exact sciences, systems biology and social science. Systems of many components, such as proteins at the cellular level, cells at the organ level, or agents at the social one, to give some examples, provide the complexity science of a ubiquity that has percolated all branches of knowledge. In all these cases, emergent behaviors result from the coordinated action of different components and constitute new global system properties. These new properties allow the system to adapt to the environment in an organized manner that will continue to demand new features for its survival. This leads to the evolution of systems as a natural consequence of the complexity associated with them.
This book intends to deepen in the general meaning of complexity from many points of view, to inquire in the different statistical and computational valid paradigms and also to record new algorithms and applications in the broad field of complexity science.
