Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book, edited and authored by a closely collaborating network of social scientists and psychologists, recasts typical research topics in these fields into the language of nonlinear, dynamic and complex systems. The aim is to provide scientists with different backgrounds - physics, applied mathematics and computer sciences - with the opportunity to apply the tools of their trade to an altogether new range of possible applications. At the same time, this book will serve as a first reference for a new generation of social scientists and psychologists wishing to familiarize themselves with the new methodology and the "thinking in complexity".

Synopsis:

This book applies the complexity approach to human and psychological studies. Complete with many case studies, it serves as an ideal introduction to the field for social scientists and psychologists.

About the Author

Two more volume editors to join. The main editor, A Nowak, is internationally known and member of many committees in complexity societies and panels. A couple of more books with him as author or editor are in planning.
