Complexity - Complex Systems Theory
Complex systems present problems both in mathematical modelling and philosophical foundations. The study of complex systems represents a new approach to science that investigates how relationships between parts give rise to the collective behaviors of a system and how the system interacts and forms relationships with its environment. The equations from which models of complex systems are developed generally derive from statistical physics, information theory and non-linear dynamics, and represent organized but unpredictable behaviors of natural systems that are considered fundamentally complex. wikipedia (en)

I <3 Science.

It just keeps learning more and more about the universe, ourselves and ourselves within the universe.

It doesn't stop, until we stop.

 

The lessons that are discussed here are applicable to our social sciences and questions of governance, especially the non-linear nature of society, economy and social psychology and the importance of initial conditions.

 

It's not a stable universe.

 

And we're living and apart of the instability!

 

Think about it.

Wow! such a rare delightful material .... Ralph Abraham and Lorenz who could imagine!

Abrupt rise of new machine ecology beyond human response time : Scientific Reports : Nature Publishing Group | Complexity - Complex Systems Theory | Scoop.it

Society's techno-social systems are becoming ever faster and more computer-orientated. However, far from simply generating faster versions of existing behaviour, we show that this speed-up can generate a new behavioural regime as humans lose the ability to intervene in real time. Analyzing millisecond-scale data for the world's largest and most powerful techno-social system, the global financial market, we uncover an abrupt transition to a new all-machine phase characterized by large numbers of subsecond extreme events. The proliferation of these subsecond events shows an intriguing correlation with the onset of the system-wide financial collapse in 2008. Our findings are consistent with an emerging ecology of competitive machines featuring ‘crowds’ of predatory algorithms, and highlight the need for a new scientific theory of subsecond financial phenomena.

A Whirling Dervish puts physicists in a spin | Complexity - Complex Systems Theory | Scoop.it
A force that intricately links the rotation of the Earth with the direction of weather patterns in the atmosphere has been shown to play a crucial role in the creation of the hypnotic patterns created by the skirts of the Whirling Dervishes.
