Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:
For five years the Complex Systems Summer School has contributed greatly to education and research into complex systems. 1992 Lectures in Complex Systems presents a wide array of topics in the field, including chaos, adaptive computation, neuronal oscillations, computational ecologies, the geometry of excitability, quenched disorder, biomolecular complexity, and nonlinear dynamics of social systems. This book is a compilation of many of the lectures and contributions of the 1992 Complex Systems Summer School. The collective volumes in the Series (Lectures in the Sciences of Complexity, 1989 Lectures in the Sciences of Complexity, 1990 Lectures in Complex Systems, 1991 Lectures in Complex Systems, and now 1992 Lectures in Complex Systems) comprise a growing, broad, interdisciplinary review of the many sciences of complexity—a review unavailable elsewhere.Lectures included in This Volume:Melanie Mitchell: Genetic AlgorithmsCharles M. Gray: Rhythmic Activity in Neuronal Systems: Insights Into Integrative FunctionTad Hogg & Bernardo A. Huberman: Better than Best: The Power of CooperationA.T.
