From System Complexity to Emergent Properties

Emergence and complexity refer to the appearance of higher-level properties and behaviours of a system that obviously comes from the collective dynamics of that system's components. These properties are not directly deducible from the lower-level motion of that system. Emergent properties are properties of the "whole'' that are not possessed by any of the individual parts making up that whole. Such phenomena exist in various domains and can be described, using complexity concepts and thematic knowledges. This book highlights complexity modelling through dynamical or behavioral systems. The pluridisciplinary purposes, developed along the chapters, are able to design links between a wide-range of fundamental and applicative Sciences. Developing such links - instead of focusing on specific and narrow researches - is characteristic of the Science of Complexity that we try to promote by this contribution.
Presents multidisciplinary approaches for getting representations of complex systems and using different methods to extract emergent structures.
Special attention is paid to applications of complexity such as geographical systems, dynamical artificial or natural complex networks, transport and traffic flow or decision support systems
brings together researchers from physics, engineering, biology and chemistry
