Complex Systems research is a multidisciplinary field covering the gamut from Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Biology to Economics. Whilst there is no good agreement on what the term ``Complexity'' might mean, there are a number of threads or concepts linking the different disciplines together into a coherent field of research. Traditional mathematical techniques such as Analysis, Linear Algebra and Differential Equations have been largely ineffective at tackling the problems in Complex Systems; it is only in the last twenty years or so that computer modeling has been able to shed light in this field of research. The field is maturing, and the complex systems models are getting more sophisticated. It is now becoming apparent that high performance computing and in particular parallel computing will need to be exploited in the next generation of models. Unfortunately, the structure of typical complex systems models have acted as an impediment to effctive expoitation of their inherent parallelism. This paper discusses some of the issues, and suggests a way forward.
Complex Systems
The idea of what is a complex system is not well defined, however people intuitively feel that a biological organism is complex, whereas a cup of water is not. There are a number of themes which run through studies of complex systems, one of the more important being that of emergence. Whilst the notion of emergence is as notoriously difficult to pin down rigourously as the concept of complexity, it refers to the idea that a system's properties arise (or emerge) out of the interactions of the components of that system, rather than being a property of the components themselves i.e. ``the whole is more than the sum of its parts''. Examples of systems studied include: ecology, evolution, economics, artificial life, genetic algorithms, neural networks, cellular automata and agent-based modeling.

28. Complex Systems And Economy Introduction
complex systems and Economics. Economic sections. The economy as a complex system. Economic systems display contradictory features.
Complex Systems and Economics
Economic systems are made of a large number of interacting agents and display also suprising self organizing features and macroscopic order in spite of the underlying disorder among its constituents. It is easy to understand why there is a great temptation to extrapolate that line of thaught to account for some basic, stylized facts of economic systems. This approach however amounts to take specially into account the interactions among the agents, and the way in which they coadapt to each other and to regard equilibrium in a more dynamical way. This departs from the more usual anstatz in macroeconomy in which society is envisaged as a collection of identical agents and its actions are aggregated without great consideration to the problem of the internal coordination. Describing systems in this way requires nevertheless to pay a heavy overhead in abstraction and simplification. The working of a real economic systems involves enormous amounts of information. It is impossible and impractical to retain it all. Some of it is irrelevant and has to be discarded. Other is specific to some of the features of the system but plays no essential role in others. The rest of the information turns out instead to be relevant to understand some important behaviour of the system. The process of abstraction and simplification that is involved in discarding and retaining information has to undergo the acid test of providing in the end a coherent picture of the structure and the behaviour of the system - or at least of the few features that one is willing to understand.

  • I. Introduction to Complex Systems Theory : Basic Definition
    A Complex System is any system which involves a number of elements, arranged in structure(s) which can exist on many scales. These go through processes of change that are not describable by a single rule nor are reducible to only one level of explanation, these levels often include features whose emergence cannot be predicted from their current specifications. Complex Systems Theory also includes the study of the interactions of the many parts of the system. Previously, when studying a subject, researchers tended to use a reductionist approach which attempted to summarize the dynamics, processes, and change that occurred in terms of lowest common denominators and the simplest, yet most widely provable and applicable elegant explanations.

    Complex systems have a number of properties, some of which are listed below. It is also often used as a broad term addressing a research approach which includes ideas and techniques from chaos theory artificial life evolutionary computation and genetic algorithms Systems thinking is another approach which attempts to study systems in a holistic way, to take account of the kinds of complexity found in complex systems.

    Features of complex systems
    What distinguishes a complex system from a merely complicated one is that some behaviors and patterns emerge in complex systems as a result of the patterns of relationship between the elements. Emergence is perhaps the key property of complex systems and a lot of work is being done to try to understand more about its nature and the conditions which will help it to occur. edit

    INSIGHTS FROM complex systemS. Scientists and nonscientists alike are in the business of trying to make sense of the world. Additional complex system resources.
    Scientists and non-scientists alike are in the business of trying to make sense of the world. And in so doing, both scientists and non-scientists make use of conceptual frameworks, habitual ways of thinking which influence both how one tries to make sense of new observations and the new questions one asks (and doesn't ask). These conceptual frameworks are themselves a product of trying to make sense of the world, and hence themselves reflect the kinds of observations that have been made and can be made. Computers, like telescopes and microscopes, have opened a whole new world of possible observations. Because of the rapidity with which they can do well-defined calculations, computers have made it possible to explore the consequences of relatively simple interactions of relatively simple things in a way never before possible. And, in a variety of different disciplines, it is similarly emerging that this new capability for observations makes possible significant insights into phenomena long believed to be too complex for serious analysis. Perhaps even more importantly, there is emerging a new and quite general conceptual framework, one equally useable in a variety of different sciences ... and by non-scientists as well. The following is an effort to begin characterizing that framework, in a form which can be used by everyone interested in trying to make sense of the world.

      By Lucy Sherriff Published Tuesday 18th May 2004 11:27 GMT The new Institute will bring together researchers from maths, statistics, engineering, physics and biology, to establish a collaborative approach to modelling complex systems, such as the development of disease, and the behaviour of materials under electrical impulse. Systems like these are governed by the behaviour of their smallest components, on a micro scale. Despite this, when considered as a whole or from a macro scale, many complex systems exhibit similar behavioural patterns. This means that a fundamental discovery about one system can impact many areas of science. Professor Chris Budd, a mathematical scientist, and Professor Giles Hunt, a mechanical engineer will head the institute. They will be able to draw on about 30 university staff and five specially recruited post-doctoral researchers.
