About The Complexity Of Living Systems Models


  • Dobrescu Radu

    (University “Politehnica” of Bucharest)


In this paper we attempt an overview of the philosophical implications of complex systems thought, and investigate how this alternative viewpoint affects our attempts to design and utilise models for living systems. We classify the types of complex system that relate to self-organisation. The overall requirements for self-organising modeling are considered and some alternative ways of looking at some specific problems that may arise are explored. As a novelty, the paper proposes various ways of moving forward in the area of practical model design.
