Exposing the Dynamics and Structure of Complexity

 

Below are examples of a Complexity Maps of various systems, spanning economics, finance, engineering, medicine, etc. The maps reflect the structure of inter-dependencies between variables describing the various systems. The size of each node is proportional to its contribution to total system complexity. Finally, we can expose the structure of complexity.

The structure of Complexity Maps changes with time. The images reported below are merely examples of the evolving and dynamic structure of complexity at a given moment in time.
