Complex Systems and Inter/Transdisciplinary Research
Complex systems are made up of many components that interact with each other and non-linearity in the dynamics plays an essential role. The interesting properties of these systems arise as a result of the interaction of these components and cannot be studied by observing only a small part of the system. The large number of these makes fluctuations an inherent part of their dynamics. One of the notable characteristics of these systems is that order can arise spontaneously, which is called self-organization, and that "in practice"Â, the present does not always determine the future (as Newton teaches), regardless of the number of computers we have available. This is what we call CHAOS. There are diverse examples of complex systems, such as the Earth's global climate, disordered materials, social organizations, the human brain, transportation and communication systems, and air turbulence, essential in the airline industry.
