AbstractThis article is a brief introduction to complexity, complex thinking and complexitymanagement. Its purpose is to present an update on the applications of the complexitysciences particularly to the universe of corporations and management. It includes anexample taken from the globalized world and two more stories from the corporateenvironment. Some details on how to think about complexity and how to apply theconceptual and operative tools of complex thinking are provided. The article ends withsome remarks on personal, interpersonal and corporate benefits of the complexthinking.

Computational Design Solutions in architectural education: The use of script language to design complex surfacesHerrera Polo, Pablo C. (Universidad La Salle, 2014-07-16)In this paper, the author explains why architects who know how to use scripts have an advantage over the ones who just know how to manipulate a specific software. The reason behind this affirmation is that knowing how to program frees the architect from the rules and language of the interactive software. To prove his point, the author organized two workshops where students at the school of architecture learned to use Rhinoscript. The students didn’t create a new interface, but used an existing one. They adapted the program (Rhino) to a design problem they had formulated at the beginning of the workshop. Students could have also used MaxScript (3DS Max) and MelScript (Maya).

How geography influences complex cognitive abilityUniversidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) (Elsevier B.V., 2015-05-20)Evolutionary explanations for geography's influence on complex cognitive ability (CCA) imply virtually immutable components of between-nation IQ differences. Their weight vis-à-vis the weight of situational components was evaluated through an analysis of a 194-country data set. Additive effects of absolute latitude (AL) and longitudinal distance from Homo sapiens' cradle (LDC) explain Northeastern Asian higher, Sub-Saharan African lower CCAs. AL exerts cognitive influence directly and through socioeconomic development and evolutionary genetics whereas LDC does through evolutionary genetics; however, this occurs differently in Africa-Near East- Europe and elsewhere. The findings are understood assuming supremacy of contemporary UVB radiation → hormonal and climatic → socioeconomic mediators of the AL–CCA linkage whose effects are moderated by heterogeneous genetic and cultural adaptations to radiation and climate. Geography's cognitive effects are dynamic and public-policy actions may modify them.
