About this book

The authors present a tour of current thinking in a comprehensive account of the new science of complexity. They investigate how mathematics contains randomness, the role of computers in the understanding of complexity, how nature can solve problems that traditionally defeat scientists, the origins of patterns in biology and the liklihood that intelligence itself will one day breed and evolve within computers.
`...a serious, scrupulous book [which] remains sober at intellectually intoxicating altitudes.' Colin Greenland, New Scientist.
