What enables individually simple insects like ants to act with such precision and purpose as a group? How do trillions of individual neurons produce something as extraordinarily complex as consciousness? What is it that guides self-organizing structures like the immune system, the World WideWeb, the global economy, and the human genome? These are just a few of the fascinating and elusive questions that the science of complexity seeks to answer.In this remarkably accessible and companionable book, leading complex systems scientist Melanie Mitchell provides an intimate, detailed tour of the sciences of complexity, a broad set of efforts that seek to explain how large-scale complex, organized, and adaptive behavior can emerge fromsimple interactions among myriad individuals. Comprehending such systems requires a wholly new approach, one that goes beyond traditional scientific reductionism and that re-maps long-standing disciplinary boundaries. Based on her work at the Santa Fe Institute and drawing on its interdisciplinarystrategies, Mitchell brings clarity to the workings of complexity across a broad range of biological, technological, and social phenomena, seeking out the general principles or laws that apply to all of them. She explores as well the relationship between complexity and evolution, artificialintelligence, computation, genetics, information processing, and many other fields.Richly illustrated and vividly written, Complexity: A Guided Tour offers a comprehensive and eminently comprehensible overview of the ideas underlying complex systems science, the current research at the forefront of this field, and the prospects for the field's contribution to solving some ofthe most important scientific questions of our time.… (mere)

At times on the technical side of a general audience science book, Complexity: A Guided Tour covers the full range of what complexity science means, at its core (in terms of self-organising behaviour, networks and so on) and how it applies to various sciences (neuroscience, evolution, genetics, etc.).

There are some particularly inspiring, fascinating chapters. Highlights for me were her coverage of fractals, of the different ways to measure complexity, and how genetics is increasingly seen as an incredibly complex set of networks of genetic switches and machines. Occasionally I thought there were sections, or even the odd chapter, that were a little superfluous. But on the whole, Mitchell makes the case that this is an incredibly important scientific discipline that may hold profound answers to many fields of science, even if complexity science itself is still in its relative infancy.

This is very very good ( if not as little .... complex ) ( )

Pretty readable and broad introduction to a lot of ideas. A good source for more detailed things to read on particular subject of interest. ( )

A good survey book on complex systems. A sort of a cross between a popular presentation and an academic work. It does have numerous notes and a large bibiliography. ( )
