A common ground for discourse between biology, psychology, cognitive science, ecology, economics and sociology is provided by the fact that each of them deals with developing complex systems. This book is the result of a joint effort to elucidate basic similarities between these scientific disciplines, with emphasis on the application of general concepts of synergetics and of special nonlinear mathematical models of self-organization and coherent cooperative behavior.
