Nice Job on One Element of Complexity 31 juillet 2011
Par John Marke - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I like the book. In this work Page provides insight not necessarily answers.

Definitions are easy, insight isn't. Definitions I can get anywhere or make them up myself. The invitation Page provides is simple: here's a couple of ways to think about the phenomenon under consideration. And he does so with a comfortable degree of depth and rigor. I have to admit, I didn't spend a lot of time thinking about the role of diversity in complex systems. So maybe now it isn't an afterthought.

Page is no Tom Clancy, but neither is the book boring. A bit of a warning though, if you do not know much about complexity, maybe it would be a good idea to read a primer first. Page gives an intro on complexity, but its a bit shallow. I think a novice ought to have a better appreciation for connectedness, inter-dependency, adaptability, etc. in general to provide a richer context.

Let's face it, a lot of concepts in complexity science are axiomatic at best, and ill-defined/poorly understood to any degree of depth. I think it is very much worthwhile to take a characteristic of complex systems, i.e. diversity, and spend some time and effort exploring its nuances. Good job and a worthy addition to anyone's library on complexity.

If I lost my copy, is the book worthwhile enough to buy it again? Yes.

Surprisingly good--from someone who isn't a formal modeler 23 août 2013
Par Chip Hauss - Publié sur Amazon.com

I was disinclined to like this book even though I am a product of one of Page's academic departments at Michigan.

Too many books based on formal modeling are based on assumptions that have little bearing on what actually happens in the world I work in where, models or not, our job is to foster cooperation in conditions of diversity and complexity.

Much too my surprise, I really like his use of formal modeling techniques and his ability to bring them down (near) the level of mere mortals who lack his economic and mathematical sophistication. I agreed with his conclusion at least in part because I wanted to.

But seriously, the logic in his arguments contains germs of ideas we who work in the applied field should pay attention and even more than critics of cooperative problem solving ignore at their empirical and normative peril.

Great starting place for me 9 février 2014

If you are looking for research to introduce you to the role of diversity in complex adaptive systems, then you must start with Page's book. It explains the layered foundations of "how diversity happens, how it is maintained, and how it affects complex systems." This book examines the multi-level aspects of diversity (i.e., types, community compositions and interaction structures).

Diversity in definitions, is Logical in topic of, diversity in complexity, Nature is the best teacher on this topic 5 octobre 2014
Par whtmtnspirit - Publié sur Amazon.com

i love this book!!!! was fantastic to read and so understood what he meant when he said the ambiguity of definitions can get one stuck in the mud and trying to understand this topic. Then he does show, definitions are, relevant to context of discussion. the definitions have to be tweaked evovle with the topic in general as applied to different scenarios.

My opinion only, this book is a classic,, and just one of many on this topic that is good to read. But I like the style of writing, insights, not to difficult to understand, but you will have to stop and think about some of his thoughts, but i like books that make you do that, feels like conversation. He does try to get away from pure mathematics but at same time he includes it, but you can still get much from reading this book even if the math is not your favorite topic, the way you process understanding ideas.

I suggest, try the sample first, then buy the book if you like the sample. You feel a wisdom in the writing. that admits what is known, and not known. many today write not willing to admit limitations in knowledge, and that gets annoying because good research always admits limitations. Again, my opinion only, and no i'm not new to this topic, so i did have prior knowledge on this topic before I started reading this book.

Not for the faint of heart 1 mai 2013

A good read on complex systems and how systems amplify minute differences. The impact on social function as well as technology is a fascinating expansion.
