Coveney (Schlumberger Cambridge Research Laboratory) and Highfield (science editor, The Daily Telegraph) illuminate the science of complexity, the study of how single elements organize into complicated structures. They trace how key researchers built on each other's work, chart the rise of the electronic computer and a new generation of computers that run on light, and discuss computer simulations. Includes color illustrations. Of interest to general readers and professionals in science and mathematics.
