complexity_and_interaction

Last sunday (13.12.09) I gave a talk about interaction and complexity in the Arts Santa Mònica in Barcelona. In this 2.5 hours talk I also presented the project Canvi i Temps as an integrated content, since it is a project about complexity in sciences.

In the talk I presented a lot of examples, from math, physics, biology, ecology, social sciences and arts fields that explores some or many of the main concepts of complexity, such as:

emergence
cellular automata
orbit
dynamic system
fix point
attractor
fractals
chaos theory
strange attractor
genetic algorithm
free scale network

I promised to the audience I will publish a list of links to some of the resources I presented, and more and less in the same order. Among them: interesting topics, free software to download, interactive applications, videos, articles, etc…

EmergenceIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
