**Think Complexity: Complexity Science and Computational Modeling**

by Allen B. Downey

**Publisher**: Green Tea Press 2012**ISBN/ASIN**: 1449314635**Number of pages**: 146

**Description**:

This book is about complexity science, data structures and algorithms, intermediate programming in Python, and the philosophy of science. The book focuses on discrete models, which include graphs, cellular automata, and agent-based models. They are often characterized by structure, rules and transitions rather than by equations.
