Complex Systems Dynamics

An Introduction to Automata Networks

Complex Systems Dynamics introduces readers to a rich array of tools and concepts that are central to understanding and modeling complex systems. Its goal is to introduce this research field and provide an understanding of its methods and concepts as well as its many varied fields of application.

Designed as a comprehensive introduction for all students, researchers, and professionals with an interest in the sciences of complexity, the book draws its examples from the physics of disordered systems, neural networks, origins of life, and signal processing.

Translated into English by Sylvie Ryckebusch, California Institute of Technology, this book was originally published in 1989 as Dynamique des Systems Complexes: Une Introduction aux Reseaux d'automates, by InterEditions, France.
