 Publisher's Summary
 A wellbalanced overview of mathematical approaches to describe complex systems, ranging from chemical reactions to gene regulation networks, from ecological systems to examples from social sciences. Matthias Dehmer and Abbe Mowshowitz, a wellknown pioneer in the field, coedit this volume and are careful to include not only classical but also nonclassical approaches so as to ensure topicality. Overall, a valuable addition to the literature and a musthave for anyone dealing with complex systems.
