Abstract Note"This primer has been developed with the aim of conveying a range of "commons-sense" knowledge in the field of quantitative complex system science at an introductory level, providing an entry point to this important subject. The approach is modular and phenomenology driven. Examples of emerging phenomena of generic importance treated in this book are: the small world phenomenon in social and scale-free networks; phase transitions and self-organized criticality in adaptive systems; life at the edge of chaos and coevolutionary avalanches resulting from the unfolding of all living; and the concept of living dynamical systems and emotional diffusive control within cognitive system theory."--Jacket
