Before the advent of quantum mechanics in the early 20th century, most scientists believed that it should be possible to predict the behavior of any object in the universe simply by understanding the behavior of its constituent parts. For instance, if one could write down the equations of motion for every atom in a system, it should be possible to solve those equations (with the aid of a sufficiently large computing device) and make accurate predictions about that system’s future.

Meilleurs avis pour EMERGENT PHENOMENA IN SCIENCE AND EVERYDAY LIFE
i enjoyed all the different modules. I recommend they add more explanation to the chaos game assignment.
I've learned a lot about emergent phenomena on this course.
I can read about this. But I'll give it 5 stars because they deliver it nicely.
Could have been more mathematical. And could have included a section on space-time, since it's been a while that the notion of emergent space-time has entered the theoretical discussions.
