On the theory of Complex Rays
 SIAM Review
, 1997
"... The article surveys the application of complex ray theory to the scalar Helmholtz equation in two dimensions. The first objective is to motivate a framework within which complex rays may be used to make predictions about wavefields in a wide variety of geometrical configurations. A crucial ingredien ..."

Quantum complexity theory
 in Proc. 25th Annual ACM Symposium on Theory of Computing, ACM
, 1993
"... Abstract. In this paper we study quantum computation from a complexity theoretic viewpoint. Our first result is the existence of an efficient universal quantum Turing machine in Deutsch’s model of a quantum Turing machine (QTM) [Proc. Roy. Soc. London Ser. A, 400 (1985), pp. 97–117]. This constructi ..."

The architecture of complexity
 Proceedings of the American Philosophical Society
, 1962
"... A number of proposals have been advanced in recent years for the development of “general systems theory ” that, abstracting from properties peculiar to physical, biological, or social systems, would be applicable to all of them. 1 We might well feel that, while the goal is laudable, systems of such ..."

properties among diverse kinds of complex systems. The ideas that go by the name of cybernetics constitute, if not a theory, at least a point of view that has been proving fruitful over a wide range of applications. 2 It has been useful to look at the behavior of adaptive systems in terms of the concepts
ChernSimons Gauge Theory as a String Theory
, 2003
"... Certain two dimensional topological field theories can be interpreted as string theory backgrounds in which the usual decoupling of ghosts and matter does not hold. Like ordinary string models, these can sometimes be given spacetime interpretations. For instance, threedimensional ChernSimons gaug ..."

Monotone Complexity
, 1990
"... We give a general complexity classification scheme for monotone computation, including monotone spacebounded and Turing machine models not previously considered. We propose monotone complexity classes including mAC i , mNC i , mLOGCFL, mBWBP , mL, mNL, mP , mBPP and mNP . We define a simple ..."

Statistical mechanics of complex networks
 Rev. Mod. Phys

Complex networks describe a wide range of systems in nature and society, much quoted examples including the cell, a network of chemicals linked by chemical reactions, or the Internet, a network of routers and computers connected by physical links. While traditionally these systems were modeled as ra ..."

This document has been prepared using the L a T E X system. We thank Donald Knuth for T E X, Leslie Lamport for L a T E X, and Jan van der Steen at CWI for online help. Some figures were prepared by John Tromp using the xpic program. The London Mathematical Society kindly gave permission to reproduce a long extract by A.M. Turing. The Indian Statistical Institute, through the editor of Sankhy¯a, kindly gave permission to quote A.N. Kolmogorov. We gratefully acknowledge the financial support by NSF Grant DCR8606366, ONR Grant N0001485k0445, ARO Grant DAAL0386K0171, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada through operating grants OGP0036747, OGP046506, and International Scientific Exchange Awards ISE0046203, ISE0125663, and NWO Grant NF 62376. The book was conceived in late Spring 1986 in the Valley of the Moon in Sonoma County, California. The actual writing lasted on and off from autumn 1987 until summer 1993. One of us [PV] gives very special thanks to his lovely wife Pauline for insisting from the outset on the significance of this enterprise. The Aiken Computation Laboratory of Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA; the Computer Science Department of York University, Ontario, Canada; the Computer Science Department of the University xii of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada; and CWI, Amsterdam, the Netherlands provided the working environments in which this book could be written.
