There are many methods that are used to measure complexity in various fields, including algorithmic complexity, computational complexity, graph complexity, hierarchical complexity, Shannon’s information, logical depth, simplicial complexity, and thermodynamic depth. There are two types of complexity that are relevant to complex systems: static complexity and dynamic complexity. Static complexity relates to how an object or system is constructed, including the structure of the system and the interactions between components of the system.

K EY T ERMS Complex means complicated or intricate, hard to understand or deal with, composed of many interconnected parts, or having a complicated arrangement of parts. Complex systems are systems composed of many interdependent parts, where the whole system is more than the sum of its parts and its overall behavior is emergent. Subdivision is the removal of a section of a system to determine the effect on the whole. Physical systems are composed of atomic and sub-atomic components that obey the laws of physics.

Therefore, these categories, and their boundaries, are fuzzy at best. 2 Complex Systems in Physics, Biology, and Society Physical Biological Social Gases DNA Governments Crystals Cells Culture Lasers Organisms Military Weather Brain Economies Fluids Humans Families Glasses Proteins Corporations Earthquakes Ecosystems Flocks Fractals Embryos Traffic Solids Ant colony Internet Galactic structures Life Online games Physical Systems Physical systems are made up of the simplest elements—atoms, protons, electrons— obeying the universal laws of physics.
