The notion of complexity appears in this book on numerous occasions and in different contexts. It also appears in different forms, depending primarily on the type of system or problem to which it is applied. This clearly indicates that complexity plays an important role in systems problem solving. In fact, it is emerging as a fundamental concept of systems science, one that is perhaps as fundamental as the concept of energy is to the natural sciences.
