An important part of the science of complexity is the study of
emergent properties arising through dynamical processes in various
types of natural and artificial systems. This is the aim of this book,
which is the outcome of a discussion meeting within the first
European conference on complex systems. It presents multidisciplinary
approaches for getting representations of complex systems and using
different methods to extract emergent structures. This carefully
edited book studies emergent features such as self organization,
synchronization, opening on stability and robustness properties.
Invariant techniques are presented which can express global emergent
properties in dynamical and in temporal evolution systems.
This book demonstrates how artificial systems such as a distributed
platform can be used for simulation used to search emergent
placement during simulation execution.
