Complex systems, chaos, and the interface between physics and social science

The analysis of complex systems represents a great challenge in many areas of pure and applied science. Different techniques have been developed during the past few years, including mechanisms for generating deterministic chaos, which have produced new theoretical insights. These have improved our understanding of data analysis, in general, and the prediction of phenomena in environmental and economic sciences, in particular
