Complexity Digest wrote a new blog post titled Multiscale Information Theory and the Marginal Utility of Information

Complex systems display behavior at a range of scales. Large-scale behaviors can emerge from the correlated or dependent behavior of individual small-scale components. To capture this observation in a rigorous and general way, we introduce a formalism for multiscale information theory. Dependent behavior among system components results in overlapping or shared information. A system’s structure is revealed in the sharing of information across the system’s dependencies, each of which has an associated scale. Counting information according to its scale yields the quantity of...

Complexity Digest wrote a new blog post titled How to fight corruption

Anticorruption initiatives are often put forth as solutions to problems of waste and inefficiency in government programs. It’s easy to see why. So often, somewhere along the chain that links the many participants in public service provision or other government activities, funds may get stolen or misdirected, bribes exchanged for preferential treatment, or genuine consumers of public services supplemented by “ghost” users. As a result, corruption reduces economic growth and leaves citizens disillusioned and distrustful of government. It is tempting to think that more...

Complexity Digest has been successfully networking the complexity community since fall of 1999. It is edited by Dr. Carlos Gershenson, and published by the Instituto de Investigaciones en Matematicas Aplicadas y en Sistemas (IIMAS) and the Centro de Ciencias de la Complejidad (C3) of the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM), the most prestigious university in Latin America and hispanic countries.

Its founding editor was Dr Gottfried Mayer, a member of the complexity community since his residence at the Santa Fe Institute in its early days. He deceased victim of cancer on January, 2009. Until then, the sponsor of ComDig was Dean LeBaron, trustee of SFI and investment commentator. ComDig was created by Gottfried and Dean, and we try to follow their original ideas.

Contributors are welcome to send submissions to editoracomdig.unam.mx.

ComDig hopes to be of use to all of the growing number of complexity organizations and supported by them.

ComDig has been distributed by weekly email to a list of people who request copies free of charge. ComDig iss also available through RSS (Real Simple Syndication).

Copies will be made available to organizations who may wish to repost ComDig to their own mailing lists. Some may customize the appearance of the content provided to them.

Readership should range from academics in almost every field to business people who want to know how to use the concepts. From students in search of knowledge to journalists looking for items from this rich field of activity. All are encouraged so long as it is of use to them.
