Computability and Evolutionary Complexity: Markets as Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS)
Few will argue that the epi-phenomena of biological systems and socio-economic systems are anything but complex. The purpose of this Feature is to examine critically and contribute to the burgeoning multi-disciplinary literature on markets as complex adaptive systems (CAS). The new sciences of complexity, the principles of self-organisation and emergence along with the methods of evolutionary computation and artificially intelligent agent models have been developed in a multi-disciplinary fashion. The cognoscenti here consider that complex systems whether natural or artificial, physical, biological or socio-economic can be characterised by a unifying set of principles. Further, it is held that these principles mark a paradigm shift from earlier ways of viewing such phenomenon. Copyright 2005 Royal Economic Society.
