Wolfram, Stephen. 2002. A New Kind Of Science.

Wolfram, Stephen. 2002. A New Kind Of Science. Champaign, IL: Wolfram Media, Inc.

Wolfram uses simple computer experiments to show how unexpected results force a new way of looking at the operation of our universe. This book tackles a vast array of problems in science, ranging from the origins of apparent randomness in physical systems, to the interplay between free will and determinism. Wolfram writes with clarity and illustrates his points with thousands of original pictures, which allows scientists and non-scientists to enjoy what could be an intellectual revolution.
