Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Springer has published a notable work on complex systems and science. The encyclopedia provides researchers with an overview of the field and will no doubt prove to be an invaluable point of reference. . What is of particular interest is the exploration of complexity science in tackling various problems from the biological basis of consciousness to microprocessor design to sustainability of life on earth; predictability, dynamics and extent of earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, and other natural disasters." (Nature Network, July, 2009)
