Description:

The New England Complex Systems Institute (NECSI) is an independent academic research and educational institution that uses complex systems, the new interdisciplinary field of science, to approach the problems of the world today. The NECSI website states that they are examining subjects that include Haiti, ethnic violence, and economic market interdependence. Visitors interested in learning what complex systems involve should read the materials in the "About Complex Systems" link (found on the left menu on the homepage) and its four subtopics, which include a "concept map" and "visualizations". The "Research/Publications" link (also found at the top of the left menu) has a dozen or so topics that include healthcare, military conflict, and education. Visitors can click on each topic for a synopsis of the problem. Below each synopsis, visitors will find links to book chapters and articles that address the problem using the complex systems approach. From the "Books and Journals" link near the bottom of the menu on the homepage, visitors can download the full course/seminar textbook "Dynamics of Complex Systems" by the president of NECSI, Yaneer Bar-Yam.
