Syllabus of Readings for Complex Adaptive Systems and Agent-Based Computational Economics
This site is a comprehensive list of reading materials covering the evolving research topics of Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS) and Agent Based Computational Economics (ACE). This continuously updated site is a source of readings for the weekly interdisciplinary Complex Adaptive Systems Workshop at Iowa State University. The reading materials are listed according to category headings. Each listing includes a short summary of the material or simply the reference information. Many natural systems, and increasingly many artificial (man-made) systems as well, are characterized by apparently complex behaviors that arise as the result of nonlinear spatio-temporal interactions among a large number of components or subsystems. Examples of such natural systems include immune systems, nervous systems, multicellular organisms, ecologies, and insect societies. This resource is part of the Biocomplexity collection.
