To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a very good introduction to complexity. It's easy to read, doesn't restrict itself to one discipline but instead covers a broad range, and whilst it doesn't go in-depth it definitely has enough for any reader to finish with a fairly good grasp of the main issues and areas of complexity.
Complex adaptive systems are macroscopic collections of ``interacting micro-structures'' which can adapt to the changing environment, and increase their survivability as a macro-structure. (Source: URL [ ... ])
Melanie Mitchell's book is a remarkable and fascinating introductory essay guaranteed to gently guide the reader in a rewarding exploration of the complex field of dynamical systems by discussing: chaos, entropy, statistical mechanics, information theory, genetic minimisations, cellular automata, fractals, Turing's machines, neural networks, and much more...
The book is written for complete novice. It covers a broad range of issues in complexity science in an accessible and engaging way. Unlike many introductory books, it does not sacrifice the scientific rigor for the sake of accessibility, instead, it walks you step by step through the concepts and enrich your understanding in a way that minimize your struggle to digest those concepts. It really deserve the title "A guided Tour".
Highly recommended for beginners who want to start their scientific journey in complexity science and also for those who are only curious about complexity.
Das Buch ist sehr schön zu lesen und verständlich. Daher insbesondere auch für Leser interessant, die mit der Materie bislang nicht vertraut sind. Es richtet sich nicht an ein spezielles Fachpublikum sondern kann von jedermann gelesen werden. Ich kann dieses Werk uneingeschränkt jedem empfehlen, der einen Einstieg in die Thematik oder aber auch nur ein interessantes sowie unterhaltsames Buch sucht.
Great Book, its easier to set up the concepts after taking te complexity introduction santa fe institute online free course. As an enthusiast and physics undergraduate seemed pretty understandable and challenging at the same time
