about

Robust Design brings together 16 chapters by an eminent group of authors in a wide range of fields presenting aspects of robustness in biological, ecological, and computational systems. The volme is the first to address robustness in biological, ecological, and computational systems. It is anoutgrowth of a new research program on robustness at the Sante Fe Institute founded by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. For those interested in complexity or interdisciplinary science, robustness is seen as currently among the most intellectually active and promising research areas withimportant applications in all fields of science, business, and economics.
Erica Jen is at Santa Fe Institute.

Editorial Reviews

"A wide community of scientists and engineers, who increasingly rely on interdisciplinary efforts to tack their research problems, will appreciate the systems-level perspective their book provides. The authors make a nice attempt to present a comprehensive picture of a systems-level propertywith wide-reaching implications."-- Quarterly Review of Biology
