Preface: Complex dynamic systems: Nonlinear methods, mathematical models and thermodynamics

  • Carlo Bianca


This note introduces the topic of the papers published in this special issue devoted to the modeling and analysis of complex systems in the applied sciences. The study of complex systems in a unified framework has become recognized in recent years as a new scientific discipline, the ultimate of interdisciplinary fields. It is strongly rooted in the advances that have been made in diverse fields where complex dynamic arises, among others: physics, chemistry, biology, sociology, psychology, economics, anthropology, philosophy.
