Summary:
Lays out a vision for a coherent framework for understanding complex systems. By developing the idea of Brownian agents, this work combines concepts from informatics, such as multiagent systems, with approaches of statistical many-particle physics. It also shows that Brownian agent models can be successfully applied in many different contexts.
