This name is the results of a one-week workshop backed by means of the Swedish examine company, FRN, at the interface among complexity and artwork. between others, it contains discussions on no matter if "good" artwork is "complex" artwork, how artists see the time period "complex", and what poets attempt to show in observe approximately advanced habit in nature

How can we ever see past our own assumptions? Formalizing and quantifying the notion of pattern goes right to the heart of scientific practice. Over the last several decades our view of nature's lack of structure—its unpredictability—underwent a major renovation with the discovery of deterministic chaos. As the new millennium begins, ideas adapted from the theory of computation will bring empirical science to the brink of automatically discovering patterns and quantifying their structural complexity.

Behavioral diversity, to take an example, is fundamental to an organism's survival. No organism can model the environment in its entirety. Approximation becomes essential to any system with finite resources. Chaos, as we now understand it, is the dynamical mechanism by which nature develops constrained and useful randomness. And from it follow diversity and the ability to anticipate the uncertain future. There is a tendency, whose laws we dimly comprehend, for natural systems to balance order and chaos, to move to the interface between predictability and uncertainty.
