3 CHARACTERISTICS OF COMPLEX SYSTEMS 1. Change with time 2. Feedback, both positive and negative, with time delays 3. Non-linear in behavior and interactions, including threshold effects 4. Small changes in inputs or interactions may lead to big effects (the butterfly effect) 5. Causes and effects differ in space-- spatial disconnect 6. Causes and effects differ in time-- temporal disconnect 7.
