6 Emergent spatiotemporal complexity in field theory

Marcelo Gleiser

The origin of spatiotemporal order in physical and biological systems is a key scientific question of our time. How does microscopic matter self-organize to create living and non-living macroscopic structures? Do systems capable of generating spatiotemporal complexity obey certain universal principles? We propose that progress along these questions may be made by searching for fundamental properties of non-linear field models which are common to several areas of physics, from elementary particle physics to ...
