The advent of sophisticated computer technology has allowed studies of complex systems such as cell colonies, neurons in the brain, the immune system, economic markets, and social groups. In complex systems, simple, nonlinear interactions are iterated over time and give rise to self-organization (emergence), evolution, learning, and adaptation—phenomena that eluded explanation until now. This panel, including selected physicists, explores whether studies of complexity complement traditional physics or may upend science as we know it.
