In recent years, scientists have applied the principles of complex systems science to increasingly diverse fields. The results have been nothing short of remarkable: their novel approaches have provided answers to long-standing questions in biology, ecology, physics, engineering, computer science, economics, psychology and sociology. "Unifying Themes in Complex Systems" is a well established series of carefully edited conference proceedings that serve the purpose of documenting and archiving the progress of cross-fertilization in this field.

From the reviews:"This is a useful volume. ... Each of the chapters is a summary of one of the presentations given from June 25 through June 30, 2006 at the Sixth International Conference on Complex Systems ... . The chapters are short (six to eight pages) and highly condensed ... . this volume offers such a wide range of concepts, methods, and applications, anyone involved in the sciences of complexity will find many of these chapters stimulating." (John Bragin, Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation, February, 2011)
