Editorial Reviews

Contains the lectures given at the NATO Advanced Study Institute held at the Centre de Physique des Houches, France, June-July 1992. This workshop brought together mathematical physicists, theoretical physicists, and mathematicians working in fields related to local interacting systems, cellular and probabilistic automata, statistical physics, and complexity theory, as well as applications of these fields. Among the topics: automata network epidemic models, structure evolution of neural network, dynamics of random neural nets, a formula of full semi-invariants, cryptography with dynamical systems, stochastic equations on random trees, cooperative phenomena in swarms, and chaotic size dependence in spin glasses.
