The Complex Systems Summer School focuses on developing techniques for measuring and analyzing complex behavior, and applying these techniques to the study of a limited number of specific mathematical, physical, and living systems. ne 1992 summer school consisted of approximately twelve short courses together with a number of seminars on selected topics, and took place over a period of four weeks. Topics covered include chaos, computational and algorithmic complexity, neural nets and computational neurobiology, parallel models in cognition, stochastic processes in physical and biological systems and pattern formation in biological systems. An important component of the schools is the publication of the complete set of lecture notes in book form, the purpose of which is to provide students and researchers in the general scientific community with an overview of the emerging concepts of complex behavior, and their applications to specific systems.
