years ago Prigogine, winner of noble prize (1977) for nonequilibrium
thermodynamics and dissipative systems declared “the end of certainty”. In the
period of so called modernism, which almost emerged during renaissance.
Uncertainty was only embedded in the mind of peasants who were worried about
weather forecast which could either flourish his endeavor on land by proper sun
shine and in time rain or demolish all in a hurricane. In 1965, Loranz
demonstrated that the peasantry mind has been quite rational, and the wise human
should always be worried about his agricultural products. Uncertainty is
embedded in dynamics of air flow and clouds movement. Poincare, a genius French
mathematician, announced to the king of Sweden that trajectory of earth around
sun is not circular and it is even unpredictable. He opened eyes on nature once
again which was shouting by rationality of Newton in his great classical
Uncertainty and fluidity are features of today’s life. Financial
markets are collapsing in a chain crisis. Newtonian paradigm has lost his
sovereignty. Only in a cartoon generated game initial point can be defined
to win the game. Nature follows its own sweet way with laws that cannot be
easily revealed. Some unwise scientists used to smash the clock, not with a
hammer but with funny instruments, like and mechanical tools to take apart
building component and explore them one by one. Finally, they integrate the
parts and presumably are satisfied that they have grasped the true knowledge of
clock dynamic. Happily and certainly you would not apply these procedures to
your body. Life is precious and colorful even for plants and animals, let alone
human being. One cannot disintegrate cells of a living species to
inquire how it works.
New revolution and renaissance is in progress exponentially which
needs formalism not founded in classical and even quantum mechanic. The great
achievements are not only in technological domain and artistic design of
spacecraft, but in new windows where eyes are not slaves of any single
scientific paradigm. Complexity paradigm is born with no registered birth date.
The baby growing fast and is already intelligent enough to know a
straight line or circle is draw able only by the hands of a Euclidian
mathematician with the help of a pencil and a ruler. Dimensions of natural
objects are non-integer. Mandelbrot showed that fractal dimensions are due to
the dynamic of a natural process, either in biological systems or economical
Complexity paradigm has inspired minds of natural and social
scientists, medical scholars, creative engineers and financial managers. Chaos
theory, dissipative systems, dynamics and nonlinear differential mathematics
have made messy tables of libraries, academic offices and laboratories. The
beauty of this new and shiny paradigm lies in its tremendous ability to
integrate scientists, artists, and engineers upon minds. Life and universe is
not as complex as we assume, it is as complex as we do not assume.
The aim of the Research Center in Complex Systems is to pave the
roads for students and researchers to run research and work together in
At present we are a small group of scientists and engineers, focused on the
