Some influential views on emergence:
- "More is Different" (P.W. Anderson)
- The Calculi of Emergence & Computation at the Onset of Chaos (J. Crutchfield, et al.)
- Weak Emergence (M. Bedau)
Background concepts, tools and techniques:
- Information Theory and Statistical Mechanics (E.T. Jaynes; technical paper. The foundation of Maximum Entropy methods, that show how to extend thermodynamic analogies to non-physical systems and inference problems.)
- Scaling, Universality, and Renormalization: Three pillars of modern critical phenomena (E. Stanley; physics-centric, but not too painful.)
- Effective Field Theories, Reductionism and Scientific Explanation (S. Hartmann; a philosopher of science looks in detail at the methods of Effective Field Theories in Quantum Fields, a case study for many of the concepts that will appear during the module.)
