Two's company, three is complexity : a simple guide to the science of all sciences

"What do traffic jams, stock market crashes, and wars have in common? They are all explained using complexity, an unsolved puzzle that many researchers believe is the key to predicting - and ultimately solving - everything from terrorist attacks and pandemic viruses right down to rush hour traffic congestion." "In Two's Company, Three is Complexity, international expert Neil Johnson provides a readable account of this fledgling field of science. Arming readers with the tools necessary to analyze a wealth of real-world examples from overcrowded bars through to modern warfare and terrorism, Johnson reveals that despite embodying some of the most fundamental problems facing scientists today, Complexity science promises to make sense of no less than the very heart of the Universe."--Jacket
