Synergetics of the Brain Proceedings of the International Symposium on Synergetics at Schloß Elmau, Bavaria, May 2 – 7, 1983

Synergetics may be considered as an interdisciplinary effort dealing with the gene­ ral problem of how science can cope with complex systems. The preceding symposia on synergetics were devoted to systems of physics, chemistry and partly also biolo­ gy and sociology. It was possible to develop adequa...
