Saturday 24 February 2018


Definition: A complex system is a system composed of many components which may interact with each other.

In many cases, it is useful to represent such a system as a network where the nodes represent the components and the links their interactions.

Examples of complex systems are Earth’s global climate , organisms , the human brain , social organizations and economic organizations (like cities), an ecosystem , a living cell , and ultimately the entire universe.
