Although chaos theory refers to the existence between seemingly random events, it has been gaining the attention of science, technology and managements fields. The shift from traditional procedures to the dynamics of chaos and complexity theory has resulted in a new element of complexity thinking, allowing for a greater capability for analyzing and understanding key business processes.

Chaos and Complexity Theory for Management: Nonlinear Dynamics explores chaos and complexity theory and its relationship with the understanding of natural chaos in the business environment. Utilizing these theories aids in comprehending the development of businesses as a complex adaptive system.

Reviews and Testimonials

This work collects 19 self-contained, introductory essays by international contributors, looking at the latest applications of chaos and complexity theories in management. While focus is on management and economic issues, there is also discussion of technological questions. Essays are grouped in sections on chaos and complexity in finance, complexity in organizational leadership, nonlinearity in water and land management, and chaos in management and econo-physics. Some individual subjects addressed include nonlinear correlation of stock and commodity indices in emerging and developed markets, managing fisheries in light of complexity and chaos theory, and measuring nonlinear fluctuations in power plants. Banerjee teaches at the Institute for Mathematical Research at the University Putra Malaysia.
