Intro video to the history and ideas of complexity science and networks

Petter Holme

I needed a video presenting the historical development of ideas behind the complexity and network science in 20 minutes—an impossible task of course (especially since I couldn’t spend too much time on prepping it). Anyway, someone out there would be interested, so here it is:

Some credits not stated in the video: The starling murmuration video comes from NYT (travel section April 4, 2022), the Boids-like simulation from Complexity Explorables. All photos except the book covers, come from Wikipedia. The network picture comes from Helen H Jennings (1959), Sociometry of group relations. The Odum & Odum book is really called The Energy Basis for Man and Nature.
