  • Complex systems often comprise many kinds of components which vary over many orders of magnitude in size: Populations of cities in countries, individual and corporate wealth in economies, species abundance in ecologies, word frequency in natural language, and node degree in complex networks. Comparisons of component size distributions for two complex systems---or a system with itself at two different time points---generally employ information-theoretic instruments, such as Jensen-Shannon… CONTINUE READING
