Wolfram went on to discover that the same vastly complex images could be produced by even very simple sets of rules and argues here that dynamic and complex systems throughout nature are triggered by simple programs. Physics and computer science genius Stephen Wolfram, whose Mathematica computer language launched a multimillion-dollar company, now sets his sights on a more daunting goal: understanding the universe. Was he on the lash or on ego building supplements ?? I am looking forward to reading it. Exciting ideas.

Had this been written by a lesser scientist, many academics might have dismissed it as the work of a crank. Lots of illustrations. Wolfram uses his approach to tackle a remarkable array of fundamental problems in science, from the origins of apparent randomness in physical systems, to the development of complexity in biology, the ultimate scope and limitations of mathematics, the possibility of a truly fundamental theory of physics, the interplay between free will and determinism and the character of intelligence in the universe. Readers will find themselves swept away by the elegant simplicity of Wolfram's ideas and the accidental artistry of the cellular automaton models. There was an error retrieving your Wish Lists. Any informed, motivated reader can, with some effort, follow from chapter to chapter, but the work as a whole and its implications are probably understood fully by the author alone. Based on the very same programs that Stephen Wolfram used to create the graphics in his book A New Kind of Science, this product allows you to experience the discoveries of the book on your own computer, repeating Wolfram's experiments and trying ones of your own.
