“Alternate Realities: Mathematical Models of Nature and Man” by John L. Casti

Alternate Realities

Recently I have re-read this book 15 years after the first reading. It covers various topics from definition of complexity (as a measure of surprise/difference between the anticipated and real outputs of the system), building mathematical model generating predetermined series of outputs, introduction to theory of catastrophes, cellular automata, etc.
