I spent a couple months reading deliberately on complexity and its many off-shoots and applications. After summarizing the books I read and wrangling with the concepts for some time, I have attempted to make a distilled “teacher’s reference guide” or cheat sheet which (hopefully) describes the key terms and ideas in a clear, concise and applicable manner.
*The vast majority of the content is from the books and not my own words. I’ve simply distilled, compiled, and added a few notes. This is clearly my amateur attempt which I’m sure has many points that experts would refute or disapprove of. Please reach out with any suggestions as I plan to iterate and improve this document over time.
A primer on problem solving on scales from local to global, how systems exist and react in the real world while acknowledging that all models are false although they help us simplify and at times make better predictions
