( Are mathematical equations the best way to model nature...)
Are mathematical equations the best way to model nature? For many years it had been assumed that they were. But in the early 1980s, Stephen Wolfram made the radical proposal that one should instead build models that are based directly on simple computer programs. Wolfram made a detailed study of a class of such models known as cellular automata, and discovered a remarkable fact: that even when the underlying rules are very simple, the behavior they produce can be highly complex, and can mimic many features of what we see in nature. And based on this result, Wolfram began a program of research to develop what he called A Science of Complexity.”The results of Wolfram’s work found many applications, from the so-called Wolfram Classification central to fields such as artificial life, to new ideas about cryptography and fluid dynamics. This book is a collection of Wolfram’s original papers on cellular automata and complexity. Some of these papers are widely known in the scientific community; others have never been published before. Together, the papers provide a highly readable account of what has become a major new field of science, with important implications for physics, biology, economics, computer science and many other areas.

This book is an adaptation of Stephen Wolfram's work, "Mathematica: A System for Doing Mathematics by Computer", second edition. This adaptation addresses the student's need for more concise and accessible information. The author has trimmed his book to nearly half its original length, focusing only on those functions and topics likely to be encountered in educational settings. At the same time, he has added examples to make certain discussions more understandable for students.
