BBC Video - The Secret Life of Chaos
Chaos theory has a bad name, conjuring up images of unpredictable weather, economic crashes and science gone wrong. But there is a fascinating and hidden side to Chaos, one that scientists are only no...
Starling - Earthflight (Winged Planet) - Peregrine Falcon Hunts Starlings in Rome (Narrated by David Tennant)
5 million starlings stream into Rome every winter evening. They form some of the most mesmeric aerial displays to confuse and avoid a peregrine falcon on the...
Self-organization
Self-organization is the spontaneous often seemingly purposeful formation of spatial, temporal, spatiotemporal structures or functions in systems composed of few or many components. In physics, chemis...
Using Chaos Theory to Predict and Prevent Catastrophic 'Dragon King' Events
Chaotic systems exhibit complex behavior and, occasionally, can end up with some catastrophic results: a stock market crash or an enormous earthquake, for example. But new research suggests that certa...
Self-organization - Nanoparticle film senses strain with high sensitivity
Researchers in Greece have been working on techniques to make nanoparticles in vacuum and studying self-organization phenomena. In parallel the team based at the National Technical University o...

Dynamical system
A dynamical system is a concept in mathematics where a fixed rule describes how a point in a geometrical space depends on time. Examples include the mathematical models that describe the swinging of ...
Complex systems
Complex systems present problems both in mathematical modelling and philosophical foundations. The study of complex systems represents a new approach to science that investigates how relationships be...
Spontaneous order
Spontaneous order, also known as "self-organization", is the spontaneous emergence of order out of seeming chaos. It is a process found in physical, biological, and social networks, as well as economi...
Self-organization
Self-organization is a process where some form of overall order or coordination arises out of the local interactions between the components of an initially disordered system. This process is spontaneo...
Metasystem transition
A metasystem transition is the emergence, through evolution, of a higher level of organization or control. Prime examples are the origin of life, the transition from unicellular to multicellular organ...

Emergent gameplay refers to complex situations in video games, board games, or table top role-playing games that emerge from the interaction of relatively simple game mechanics.Designers have attempte...
Complexor
The word complexor was coined by Marcial Losada (Losada & Heaphy, 2004), derived from the words "complex order," to refer to chaotic attractors that are strange and thus have fractal structure (in...
Excitable medium
An excitable medium is a nonlinear dynamical system which has the capacity to propagate a wave of some description, and which cannot support the passing of another wave until a certain amount of time ...
