Aim and Scope

Complex adaptive systems involve many components, often called agents that interact and adapt or learn. It is a system composed of many interacting agents, such that the collective behavior of those agents together is more than the sum of their individual behaviors. The collective behaviors are sometimes also called emergent behaviors, and a complex adaptive system can thus be said to be a system of interacting parts that displays emergent behavior. Examples include ecosystems, stock markets and economies, biological evolution, and indeed the whole of human society.
