Intelligent Complex Adaptive Systems by Yang

As the world currently subsists as a platform for exchange among complex, intelligent systems that are constantly adapting and evolving to suit the surrounding physical, sociological, emotional, and sensory environment, understanding the theory and emergence of complex adaptive systems is of paramount importance. Intelligent Complex Adaptive Systems explores the foundation, history, and theory of intelligent adaptive systems, providing scholars, researchers, and practitioners with a fundamental resource on topics such as the emergence of intelligent adaptive systems in social sciences, biologically inspired artificial social systems, sensory information processing, as well as the conceptual and methodological issues and approaches to intelligent adaptive systems.
