Emergence and complexity refer to the appearance of higher-level properties and behaviours of a system that obviously comes from the collective dynamics of that system's components. These properties are not directly deducible from the lower-level motion of that system. Emergent properties are properties of the "whole'' that are not possessed by any of the individual parts making up that whole. Such phenomena exist in various domains and can be described, using complexity concepts and thematic knowledges. This book highlights complexity modelling through dynamical or behavioral systems. The pluridisciplinary purposes, developed along the chapters, are able to design links between a wide-range of fundamental and applicative Sciences. Developing such links - instead of focusing on specific and narrow researches - is characteristic of the Science of Complexity that we try to promote by this contribution.

MEDIA REVIEWS
From the reviews: "This book contains a variety of perspectives on simulation models of complexity and emergence. It aims to give the reader new ways for studying emergence by using `complexity modeling'. ... Overall, it is a useful set of chapters for the JASSS audience that is looking for new approaches and promising developments. ... The advice for modeling and dealing with complexity ... is very useful and can be helpful for many modelers." (Emile Chappin, Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation, Vol. 13 (1), 2010)
