Complexity and Self-Organization

About this Research Topic

Complexity occurs when relevant interactions prevent the study of elements of a system in isolation. These interactions between elements may lead to the self-organization of the system. In computational intelligence, complexity and self-organization have been studied and exploited with different purposes. This Research Topic aims to bring together novel research into a coherent collection, spanning from theory and methods to simulations and applications.

Computational measures of complexity and self-organization have been proposed and applied to study a broad range of phenomena. Methodologies for facing complexity and harnessing self-organization have been used to design and build a variety of systems. Computer simulations have been tools which enabled us to study complexity and self-organization, from cellular automata and artificial neural networks to multi-agent systems and computational social science. The applications of these approaches have been vast.

Considering that complexity and self-organization are very broad themes, this Research Topic focusses only on the aspects related to computational intelligence. These include:

• Formal definitions of complexity and self-organization
• Coordination, cooperation, and collective decision-making
• Algorithms
• Adaptability
• Robustness
• Simulations
• Robotics
• Methodologies
• Applications

This Research Topic will welcome submissions of all article types listed here.


Keywords: Complex Systems, Self-Organization, Adaptability, Robustness, Computational Intelligence


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
