Terms

There are a host of terms used when discussing complexity many of which overlap and differ only in subtle ways.

cas/taxonomy.php (default section or parent)

The words used to describe the behaviors of Complex systems are often technical or ambiguous. Further depending upon the research field, different terms may be used to refer to the same phenomena. This site endeavors to disambiguate terminology associated with CAS, as well as highlight parallel terms used to refer to the same concept across discourses.

Dive into the terminology!
