Summary:
"The emphasis of the book is on a clear understanding of concepts and methods, while it also provides the tools that can be of immediate use in applications." "The Second edition is a significant expansion over the first one which meanwhile has become a standard reference in complex-system research and teaching. For example, probability concepts are presented more in-depth and the sections on Levy-laws and the  Read more...

   schema:reviewBody ""The emphasis of the book is on a clear understanding of concepts and methods, while it also provides the tools that can be of immediate use in applications." "The Second edition is a significant expansion over the first one which meanwhile has become a standard reference in complex-system research and teaching. For example, probability concepts are presented more in-depth and the sections on Levy-laws and the mechanisms for power laws have been greatly enlarged. Also, considerable material has been added to the chapter on renormalization-group ideas. Further improvements can be found in the applications to earthquake or rupture models." "Although this book evolved out of a course for graduate students, it will be of great interest to researchers and engineers, as well as to post-does in physics, econophysics geophysics and meteorology."--BOOK JACKET." ;
