Bottomless wonders spring from simple rules, which are repeated without end.
— Mandelbrot, ~1980
When we talk about complex systems in time, we often used the term complex dynamical systems.
Example of complex systems
- The economy (Anderson and Global Economy Workshop 1996)
- Boolean networks
- Cellular automata
- Neural networks
Can complex systems evolve?
Can this kind of incredible events happen within other complex systems such as cellular automata?
