Robert A. MeyersГод:
This encyclopedia provides an authoritative single source for understanding and applying the concepts of complexity theory together with the tools and measures for analyzing complex systems in all fields of science and engineering. It links fundamental concepts of mathematics and computational sciences to applications in the physical sciences, engineering, biomedicine, economics and the social sciences.
From the reviews: “Springer has published a notable work on complex systems and science. The encyclopedia provides researchers with an overview of the field and will no doubt prove to be an invaluable point of reference. … What is of particular interest is the exploration of complexity science in tackling various problems from the biological basis of consciousness to microprocessor design to sustainability of life on earth; predictability, dynamics and extent of earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, and other natural disasters.”
