They are composed of a diverse array of individual components capable of interacting with each other and adapting to a changing environment. As systems, they produce behavior that differs in kind from the behavior of their components.

The Internet—perhaps the most valuable piece of computing infrastructure of the present day—may fit the description of a complex
