 Wikipedia article:  Complexity

Complexity

Complexity (100)

·         One of the problems in addressing complexity issues has been distinguishing conceptually between the large number of variances in relationships

·         The approaches that embody concepts of systems, multiple elements, multiple relational regimes, and state spaces might be summarized as implying that complexity arises from the number of distinguishable relational regimes (and their associated state spaces) in a defined system.

Complexity (100)

 

·         In science there are at this time a number of approaches to characterizing complexity, many of which are reflected in this article.

 

·         The approaches that embody concepts of systems, multiple elements, multiple relational regimes, and state spaces might be summarized as implying that complexity arises from the number of distinguishable relational regimes (and their associated state spaces) in a defined system.

 

·         One of the problems in addressing complexity issues has been distinguishing conceptually between the large number of variances in relationships extant in random collections, and the sometimes large, but smaller, number of relationships between elements in systems where constraints (related to correlation of otherwise independent elements) simultaneously reduce the variations from element independence and create distinguishable regimes of more-uniform, or correlated, relationships, or interactions.

 

·         Weaver perceived and addressed this problem, in at least a preliminary way, in drawing a distinction between "disorganized complexity" and "organized complexity".

 

·         Though the interactions of the parts in a "disorganized complexity" situation can be seen as largely random, the properties of the system as a whole can be understood by using probability and statistical methods.

 

·         The source of disorganized complexity is the large number of parts in the system of interest, and the lack of correlation between elements in the system.

 

·         For instance, for many functions (problems), such a computational complexity as time of computation is smaller when multitape Turing machines are used than when Turing machines with one tape are used.

 

·         Random Access Machines allow one to even more decrease time complexity (Greenlaw and Hoover 1998: 226), while inductive Turing machines can decrease even the complexity class of a function, language or set (Burgin 2005).

 

·         In several scientific fields, "complexity" has a specific meaning : In computational complexity theory, the amounts of resources required for the execution of algorithms is studied.

 

·         In algorithmic information theory, the Kolmogorov complexity (also called descriptive complexity, algorithmic complexity or algorithmic entropy) of a string is the length of the shortest binary program that outputs that string.

 

·         An axiomatic approach to Kolmogorov complexity based on Blum axioms (Blum 1967) was introduced by Mark Burgin in the paper presented for publication by Andrey Kolmogorov (Burgin 1982).

 

·         The axiomatic approach to Kolmogorov complexity was further developed in the book (Burgin 2005) and applied to software metrics (Burgin and Debnath, 2003; Debnath and Burgin, 2003).

 

·         In mathematics, Krohn-Rhodes complexity is an important topic in the study of finite semigroups and automata.

 

·         This differs from the computational complexity described above in that it is a measure of the design of the software.

 

·         The topic is commonly recognized as social complexity that is often related to the use of computer simulation in social science, i.e.: computational sociology.

 

·         It is orthogonal to the forms of complexity discussed so far, which are called horizontal complexity Bejan and Lorente showed that complexity is modest (not maximum, not increasing), and is a feature of the natural phenomenon of design generation in nature, which is predicted by the Constructal law.

 

algorithms (100)

 

·         In several scientific fields, "complexity" has a specific meaning : In computational complexity theory, the amounts of resources required for the execution of algorithms is studied.

 

science (85)

 

·         The study of these complex linkages is the main goal of network theory and network science.

 

·         In science there are at this time a number of approaches to characterizing complexity, many of which are reflected in this article.

 

·         In social science, the study on the emergence of macro-properties from the micro-properties, also known as macro-micro view in sociology.

Kolmogorov Complexity (67)

 

·         In algorithmic information theory, the Kolmogorov complexity (also called descriptive complexity, algorithmic complexity or algorithmic entropy) of a string is the length of the shortest binary program that outputs that string.

About Henry

Hi, I’m Henry Lewkowicz and I’m the CEO of Context Discovery Inc. For long time I have been interested in the importance of context in understanding information. Intuitively we recognize the meaning of context when we say “you took my words out of context”. This phrase vividly signifies how much we care about our intentions and point of view. I believe that in the Internet age context plays a big role in rapid understanding of information. I’ll go on the record and say that in fact seeing information in context dramatically speeds understanding and simplifies application of information. In this blog I hope to have a lively dialog with you on a range of subjects related to context, information overload, knowledge, learning and other fun topics. In the course of doing it I will be using our own application, Context Organizer, as an experiment in capturing in 1 sentence what bloggers and other writers publish. I hope that we all will have some fun with it and learn more about communicating. Although this is primarily a technology and business blog, to great degree it's also my personal blog. From time to time, amongst the customary posts, I will write about issues that I passionately care about, my travels, and photos that I've taken. Periodically I refer to my family or friends, and sometimes you even see my vacation photos. I hope to make lots of new friends and learn a great deal in the process. Life is too short…. Enjoy, and feel free to write to me.
