This book explores the process of modeling complex systems in the widest sense of that term, drawing on examples from such

diverse fields as ecology, epidemiology, sociology, seismology, as well as economics. It also provides the mathematical tools for

studying the dynamics of these systems.;Boccara takes a carefully inductive approach in defining what it means for a system to

be "complex" (and at the same time addresses the equally elusive concept of emergent properties).;This is the first text on the

subject to draw comprehensive conclusions from such a wide range of analogous phenomena
