Summary:
This work presents a series of dramatic discoveries never before made public. Starting from a collection of simple computer experiments---illustrated in the book by striking computer graphics---Wolfram shows how their unexpected results force a whole new way of looking at the operation of our universe. Wolfram uses his approach to tackle a remarkable array of fundamental problems in science: from the origin of the  Read more...

Abstract:

Explores the implications of the existence of complex systems (ie, life) in a chaotic universe, and how increasing the mathematical understanding of how complex behaviour can arise out of simple  Read more...
