Starting from a collection of simple computer experiments---illustrated in the book by striking computer graphics---Wolfram shows how their unexpected results force a whole new way of looking at the operation of our universe. Wolfram uses his approach to tackle a remarkable array of fundamental problems in science: from the origin of the Second Law of thermodynamics, to the development of complexity in biology, the computational limitations of mathematics, the possibility of a truly fundamental theory of physics, and the interplay between free will and determinism.Written with exceptional clarity, and illustrated by more than a thousand original pictures, this seminal book allows scientists and non-scientists alike to participate in what promises to be a major intellectual revolution.The companion software program, based on the very same programs that Stephen Wolfram used to create the graphics in his book, allows you to experience the discoveries of A New Kind of Science on your own computer, repeating Wolframs experiments and trying new ones of your own. Included are over 450 key experiments from the book, which offer a full range of inputs and parameters for further exploration. This software is ideal for personal study, recreation, or classroom use.
