## Some Foundations in Complex Systems: Entropy, Information,
Computation, and Complexity.

### David P. Feldman

I have developed a series of lectures which I have delivered at the
Santa Fe Institute's
annual Complex
Systems Summer School in Beijing China since 2004. A list of
topics covered is below. Here are the slides from the two most recent
versions of the lectures:
- Beijing 2008 [pdf]
(17MB, 295 slides)
- Paris 2007 [pdf]
(17MB, 293 slides)

The Paris lectures were given at the Complex Systems Summer School,
Institut des Systemes
Complex de Paris Ile-de-France in Paris.
