5.0 von 5 Sternen Experimental complexiry for everyone
When Papert created the LOGO computer language, it was with the idea of creating a tool simple enough for children to use that could nontheless teach them very power notions about algorithms and the power of computing. With Star LOGO, Mitchell Resnick has created a equally simple, yet unbelievably powerful tool that can be used to experiment with ideas of...

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Turtles, Termites and Traffic Jams: Explorations in Massively Parallel Microworlds (Complex Adaptive Systems) (Taschenbuch)
This book is mainly about Star Logo, an extension to the Logo language, you know, this program with a turtle strolling around, for children to get acquainted with computers and plane geometry.
Star Logo has much more features, allowing easy yet sounding powerful implementation of decentralized system, which one famous instance is cellular automaton, and some specific others in the book are ant colonies behavior, forest fires or traffic jams, with the cell of cellular automata being replaced by the notion of an "agent" (less known it seems to the public).
If you need a book for Star Logo, this is the one to get, but if you are looking for artificial life and self organization alone, don't get it.
Excellent bibliography.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Turtles, Termites and Traffic Jams: Explorations in Massively Parallel Microworlds (Complex Adaptive Systems) (Taschenbuch)
When Papert created the LOGO computer language, it was with the idea of creating a tool simple enough for children to use that could nontheless teach them very power notions about algorithms and the power of computing. With Star LOGO, Mitchell Resnick has created a equally simple, yet unbelievably powerful tool that can be used to experiment with ideas of complexity.
"Termites..." is about how complex behaviors can arise from very simple systems, and to that end Resnick provides a number of case histories and simple programs that demonstrate how conceptually complex systems can be simulated using only a few rules. Phenomena as diverse as the movement of traffic james, pile making by termites and the migration of slime molds can all be simulated in Star LOGO with very a few assumtions. But Resnick's programs aren't just simulations; they're models of the real underlying processes that govern these complex phenomena.
Resnick hasn't just created a clever program; he's provided a wonderful tool for exploring complexity, and found a way of translating complexity into something a child can understand- while still fascinating to an adult.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book is an excellent intro to complex systems, 14. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Turtles, Termites and Traffic Jams: Explorations in Massively Parallel Microworlds (Complex Adaptive Systems) (Taschenbuch)
The study of complex systems is a little too trendy at the moment to be conducive to good science. Many of the popular books on the topic are full of entertaining speculation and little reliable information.
Resnick takes a more humble and more successful tack, starting with a simple world model (parallel turtles!) and developing surprising insight into such phenomena as ant behavior and traffic jams. This book might change the way you think.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Challenges your centralized way of thinking, 27. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Turtles, Termites and Traffic Jams: Explorations in Massively Parallel Microworlds (Complex Adaptive Systems) (Taschenbuch)
The book starts off slow but quickly builds on the principles discussed. I found many chapters fascinating. The book shows how the actions of simple organisms - termites and ants, can build into systems much more complex than the sum of their parts. The decentralized way of thinking helps in understanding the actions of things such as stock markets and the economy.
