    Mar 24,  · Complex adaptive systems are all around us from financial markets, to ecosystems, to the human immune system and even civilization itself. They consist of many agents that are acting and reacting to each other’s behavior, out of this often chaotic set of interactions emerges global patterns of organization in a dynamic world of constant change and evolution where nothing. This book provides an introduction to the role of diversity in complex adaptive systems. A complex system--such as an economy or a tropical ecosystem--consists of interacting adaptive entities that produce dynamic patterns and structures. Diversity plays a different role in a complex system than it does in an equilibrium system, where it often merely produces variation around the mean for Author: Scott E Page.

    may constitute a complex adaptive system. There are many familiar examples of complex adaptive systems and most of them are of interest in one way or another to the military. Keeping a few of these in mind helps one recognize the common structure and properties that ―define‖ complex adaptive sys-tems. Complex Adaptive Systems: An Introduction to Computational Models of Social Life (Princeton Studies in Complexity Book 17) Complex Adaptive Systems: This is a unique and valuable book on complex adaptive systems which is focused specifically on the organizational context.

Complex adaptive system (CAS) A dynamic network of many agents (which may represent cells, species, individuals, firms, nations) acting in parallel, constantly acting and reacting to what the other agents are doing.

Complex adaptive systems (CAS) Complex Adaptive Systems book proven to be a powerful tool for exploring these and other related phenomena. The authors characterize a general CAS model as having a large number of self-similar agents that: 1) utilize one or more levels of feedback; 2) exhibit emergent properties and self-organization; and 3) produce non-linear dynamic behavior.

Complex Adaptive Systems This series examines the processes and models of complex adaptive systems, such as ecosystems, the cell and biological systems, cities, markets, and governments. This series is no longer active, and the MIT Press is no longer accepting proposals for books in the series. Complex adaptive systems are a composite of the interconnected whole that empowers teams and leaders to understand and address intragroup conflict in complex and adaptive situations.
