What this home page concerns
The origin of life is mysterious. Obviously life was created from inanimate objects, and is composed of them. We know each molecular is not life, but they gain mind or an intention once they organize certain patterns.
One of the fundametal question on life is whether we can create life, for instance, on our computers? A computer with mind sounds like a science fiction and it is natural to suspect the possibility of artificial life, but many people are seriously triying to solve this problem.
Another prominent property of life is redundancy. For instance, a damage of a part of DNA is mostly compensated by another parts. It seems genes are organizing a network, and the production of necessary protain is guaranteed by many ways. Life is amazingly robust. What made or can make life so rubust? This is, I reckon, self-organization. The important thing is that the two essential abilities described above, to self-replicate and to evolve, were not given by anybody, but spontaneously acquaired. That's why these capacities of life are robust. So the third property is rubustness of the two properties, I believe, and the last one, I hope. Consequently, I believe that to create life is to create self-organized self-replication and self-organized evolution , but I do not know how to do it.

This track seeks to explore methods at the frontier of understanding complex system phenomena. Of special interest is the use of the electric power systems as a context for this exploration. For HICSS-38 we would like to have four minitracks covering 8 sessions in two days. Minitracks: Information and Data Management and Analysis for Large Systems Thomas J. Overbye Market Designs and Infrastructure Investments Richard E. Schuler ... Peter W. Sauer Information and Data Management and Analysis for Large Systems Managing the operation of large, networked systems is becoming increasingly complex. Often, critical information about the system is getting lost in a tidal wave of data. A particularly germane example is the electric power grid, as evidenced by the problems experienced in the August 14th 2003 blackout. One of the key causes of the blackout was the people operating the system in various regions through the eastern part of North America did not have access to the “big picture.” The focus of this mini-track is on the management, analysis, and visualization of systems characterized by extremely large sets of data that cover spatial, temporal and contingent dimensions. Papers should focus on techniques for extracting information from such large data sets.

What we have now is a rather simple model of a complex system dependent on just two variables, and yet it is capable of exhibiting extremely surprising
An Introduction to Complex Systems
Torsten Reil, Department of Zoology, University of Oxford

The study of complex systems has gained increasing attention in recent years, in such diverse disciplines as economics, life science, sociology, physics and chemistry. The multidisciplinary approach taken by its students has revealed a surprisingly high degree of applicability of the concepts to the different fields. Behaviour of biological systems seems to be mirrored in that of economic ones; likewise, ideas gained from studying physical systems were found to provide new insights about social systems such as democracy.
Here, it will be tried to convey the fundamental ideas and principles underlying the study of complex systems. Like the previous teaching package on Chaotic Systems , HTML (+Java) was chosen as the medium, for it allows interactivity not provided by static text material.
The discussion will be centred around Random Boolean Networks, the analysis of which was pioneered by Stuart Kauffman of the Santa Fe Institute. This choice is based on three considerations: a) substantial work has been carried out on these networks, b) they were found to have many potential applications in biology, economics or sociology, c) they lend themselves to computer simulations, one of which is contained in this package in the form of an applet.
Despite a thorough dealing with Boolean Networks, the mathematics are limited to a degree that allows A-level students as well as non-science undergraduates to follow the discussion.

66. Physics
concept is that of emergence, which refers to the appearance of laws, patterns or order through the cooperative effects of the subunits of a complex system.
Complex Systems
by Rajesh R. Parwani
Complexity refers to the study of complex systems , of which there is no uniformly accepted definition because, well, they are complex. Roughly speaking, one says that a system is complex if it consists of many interacting components (sub-units) and if it exhibits behaviour that is interesting but at the same time not an obvious consequence of the known interaction among the sub-units. That sounds very vague, especially the use of words like "interesting" and "obvious", but it reflects an evolutionary perspective. For example, a hundred years ago one might have described the study of how a substance changes under heat (phase transitions) as a difficult and interesting problem that required one to deal with systems with a large number of interacting components (atoms). However by now very powerful tools, such as thermodynamics and statistical mechancis, have been developed to deal with such equilibrium systems leading to impressive quantitative agreement between theory and experiment. Though such systems are not commonly referred to as complex, they still provide valuable examples and concepts that have been used in complexity studies. Current interest has shifted to dynamical systems that are (generally) out-of-equilibrium and thus highly non-linear . Such sytems actually form the bulk of natural phenomena but for which the theoretical tools are as yet poorly developed. Some examples of such complex systems or phenomena are: The economy, the stock-market, the weather, ant colonies, earthquakes, traffic jams, living organisms, ecosystems, turbulence, epidemics, the immune system, river networks, land-slides, zebra stripes, sea-shell patterns, and heartbeats.

    Some thoughts on multi-agent systems and Hypereconomy
    Version 0.46 3-March-1998 Alexander Chislenko [This is my original text on Hypereconomy. Please see Hypereconomy development group page for other materials on this topic]
    Multi-agent systems and action spaces
    People distinguish various types of systems consisting of relatively autonomous functional parts. They call them: ecology, economy, society, organism, software, etc. The rules for identifying these systems are quite simple. For example, any system consisting of biological objects would be called an ecology, one made up of humans is a society, and a part of the latter that has to do with exchanging things is an economy. However, if one wants to understand the behavior of such systems (otherwise, why study them?) it seems more productive to subdivide them into functional types. This also allows to draw analogies between similar systems of different nature (e.g., a communist economy may be similar to an integrated organism, as its parts work directly on the central order, and the role of financial flows is reduced to assist the centralized regulatory mechanism. A contract economy looks much like a forest ecology, except that agents get locked into relationships by contracts, not niches, and some other manifestations of subsystems' intelligence. So multi-agent systems can be classified by overall complexity, internal control methods, structure and viscosity (transport capacities) of the space, methods of connecting agents into stable working groups (mutual specialization, physical coupling, force, emotional affection, ownership, contracts), diversity and intelligence of agents, etc.

    Hello All, fire away. Stu MisterYetzer
    Stuart, could you comment on Robert Wright's treatment of the social complexity issue in his book, Non-Zero? Stuart Kauffman
    Sorry, I've not read Wright's book, so cannot comment. Stu caseman
    Dr. Kauffman, Can you explain the basic idea about how principles of self-organization work? Thanks! Stuart Kauffman
    If one considers models of genetic regulatory networks, comprised of random Boolean networks, these can exhibit astonishing order, or can exhibit chaos. A general phase transition separates the regimes. In the ordered regime one sees self organization Mikster
    Dr. Kauffman, do you know of any computer simulations based upon your research that we can download and run on our own machines?

    Rivet is a general-purpose environment for the analysis and visualization of complex systems. Rivet is a powerful and flexible system, providing analysts with a single tool that can be learned once and applied to a wide range of problems. The underlying approach in the development of Rivet is to understand and analyze the visualization process itself: to identify the set of fundamental visualization components, or building blocks, and define their interfaces and relationships. Users can then develop sophisticated visualizations by writing scripts that create and connect these basic building blocks. This approach, and the resulting modular architecture, provides several significant advantages:

    PDF Version Abstract active objects ; in the agent community, they are known as agents . Whether they are called active objects or agents, this new direction is going to radically change how we design systems. The biggest challenge, however, that we face is the degree of complexity that we are about to unleash. Imagine setting free a million proactive entities to run a supply chain. We are no longer choreographing their every movement as we would with traditional agents; instead, they decide when and how to execute their methods. This is both liberating - and scary. We can create complex systems, but we will not always know how to control them. In complex systems: designing the parts is not the same as designing the whole.
    Complexity is all around us. It is part of our life; it is the nature of life. Complexity is caused by the collective behavior of many basic interacting agents. Such agents can produce everyday phenomenon such as ant colonies, traffic jams, stock markets, forest ecosystems, and supply chain systems. Complex systems, however, do not have to complicated. For example, the ant colony simulation of StarLogo (
