Physics, Nature and Society : A Guide to Order and Complexity in Our World Hardback

Part of the The Frontiers Collection series

Description

This wide-ranging and accessible book serves as a fascinating guide to the strategies and concepts that help us understand the boundaries between physics, on the one hand, and sociology, economics, and biology on the other.

From cooperation and criticality to flock dynamics and fractals, the author addresses many of the topics belonging to the broad theme of complexity.

He chooses excellent examples (requiring no prior mathematical knowledge) to illuminate these ideas and their implications.

The lively style and clear description of the relevant models will appeal both to novices and those with an existing knowledge of the field.
