Abstract: The concept of complex systems has evolved from Chaos, Statistical Physics and other disciplines, and it has become a new paradigm for the search of mechanisms and a unified interpretation of the processes of emergence of structures, organization and functionality in a variety of natural and arti- ficial phenomena in different contexts [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]. The study of complex systems has become a problem of enormous common interest for scientists and professionals from various fields, including human sciences, leading to an intense process of interdisciplinary and unusual collaborations that extend and overlap the frontiers of traditional Science [7, 8, 9]. The use of concepts and techniques emerging from the study of complex systems and Statistical Physics has proven capable of contributing to the understanding of problems beyond the traditional boundaries of Physics.
