Resumen (en inglés): Complex systems are pervasive in many area of science and we find them everyday and everywhere. Examples include financial markets, highway transportation networks, telecommunication networks, world and country economies, social networks, immunological systems, living organisms, computational systems and electrical and mechanical structures. Complex systems are often composed of large number of interconnected and interacting entities exhibiting much richer global scale dynamics than they could be inferred from the properties and behaviour of individual entities. Complex systems are studied in many areas of natural sciences, social sciences, engineering and mathematical sciences.
