Abstract

In today’s world, we are increasingly surrounded by and reliant on complex systems and infrastructures. Often, these systems behave far from the optimum or even highly undesirable. Roads in our cities are congested, plane trips frequently delayed, computer networks routinely overrun by worms and electricity grids fail in split-second cascade reactions. Our systems have become massively interwoven and interdependent making both highly positive and negative chain reactions possible in critical systems.
