Complexity Digest wrote a new blog post titled Electrical experiments with plants that count and communicate

Neuroscientist Greg Gage takes sophisticated equipment used to study the brain out of graduate-level labs and brings them to middle- and high-school classrooms (and, sometimes, to the TED stage.) Prepare to be amazed as he hooks up the Mimosa pudica, a plant whose leaves close when touched, and the Venus flytrap to an EKG to show us how plants use electrical signals to convey information, prompt movement and even count.

Complexity Digest wrote a new blog post titled Preliminary Steps Toward a Universal Economic Dynamics for Monetary and Fiscal Policy

We consider the relationship between economic activity and intervention, including monetary and fiscal policy, using a universal monetary and response dynamics framework. Central bank policies are designed for economic growth without excess inflation. However, unemployment, investment, consumption, and inflation are interlinked. Understanding dynamics is crucial to assessing the effects of policy, especially in the aftermath of the recent financial crisis. Here we lay out a program of research into monetary and economic dynamics and preliminary steps toward its execution. We use general...

Complexity Digest wrote a new blog post titled Neutron-Star Collision Shakes Space-Time and Lights Up the Sky

In the days after Aug. 17, astronomers made successful observations of the colliding neutron stars with optical, radio, X-ray, gamma-ray, infrared and ultraviolet telescopes. The enormous collaborative effort, detailed today in dozens of papers appearing simultaneously in Physical Review Letters, Nature, Science, Astrophysical Journal Letters and other journals, has not only allowed astrophysicists to piece together a coherent account of the event, but also to answer longstanding questions in astrophysics.

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.
