It is often said these days that complexity has become a fundamental problem in modern science, as it concerns each and every discipline, in a multitude of shapes and forms. Before such a claim can be confirmed, there are several questions to be answered: What is complexity? Is there a precise concept behind the word? What can mathematics tell us about possible formal definitions? What are the consequences and applications of work to find a theoretical definition?
These questions, which are answered in the book, will be of interest to mathematicians, statisticians, biologists and engineering students at French grandes écoles, but also anyone looking to understand the philosophy of modern science, one of the aims of which is to grasp the profound nature of chance and complexity.
