Complex Systems occur in an infinite variety of problems, not only in the realm of physical sciences and engineering, but encompassing fields as diverse as economy, the environment, humanities, social and political sciences.
The high level of dynamics of such systems, which is usually expressed through the frequent occurrence of unpredictable disruptive events, makes conventional optimizers, batch schedulers and resource planning systems unworkable.
Composed of selected research papers, this book brings together new developments and processes for managing complexity. The included works originate from renowned complexity thinkers, well established practitioners and new researchers in the field and detail issues of common interest.
This title will particularly appeal to researchers, developers and users of complex systems from a variety of disciplines, alongside specialists in modelling complex issues.
