Complex systems and thinking on multiple scales
AbstractThe study of complex systems can be viewed generally as an effort to understand the relationships between properties of systems when viewed on different scales. Viewing a system on different scales involves distinguishing details of behavior and understanding how the details give rise to collective behaviors that can be seen on a larger scale even through most of the details are no longer distinguishable. In this talk/paper I provide a brief review of various forms of interactions/relationships between parts of a system that illustrate how collective behaviors can arise. Finally, 1 discuss the complexity profile which is designed to capture the essential idea of considering a system on multiple scales.
