Signs of Life: How Complexity Pervades Biology

by

Signs of Life: How Complexity Pervades Biology Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Signs of Life applies the mathematics of order and disorder, of entropy, chance, and randomness, of chaos and nonlinear dynamics to the various mysteries of the living world at all levels. This book is an entirely new approach to understanding living systems and will help set the agenda for biology in the coming century.

Book News Annotation:

This is a paperbound reprint of a 2000 book. The authors (whose affiliations are not stated) apply the mathematical tools of complexity theory to model biological processes in terms of complex dynamics from which characteristic patterns of order emerge. They examine genetic networks, chaos in brain function, emergent phenomenon of ant colonies, the nonlinear behavior of complex ecologies, and fractal cities.
