Deep Simplicity

October 8th, 2006

Another book I read recently is Deep Simplicity by John Gribbin. Gribbin writes about complexity and chaos theory and does so in a manner that is easy to understand yet seems to cover many of the scientific complexities. He used a number of examples, both scientific theories over time as well as experimental (and natural) evidence for complexity theory. The crux of Gribbin’s examples deal with systems that are, in his words, “on the edge of chaos”. That is, systems that are not in equilibrium, rather systems that are at the edge of some dynamic instability and what kind of behavior can be expected from these systems. Ultimately, Gribbin is trying to illustrate many of the systems and processes that operate at a fundamental level in the universe. I found the entire topic to be thought provoking and may look for other books written by John Gribbin.
