By Janaki Balakrishnan,B V Sreekantan

Organisms endowed with existence exhibit a feeling of wisdom, interacting with and studying from the universe in and round them. every one point of interplay contains move of knowledge of assorted forms, and at diverse degrees. each one thread of data is interlinked with the opposite, and woven jointly, those represent the universe — either the interior self and the exterior global — as we understand it. they're, figuratively talking, Nature's longest threads. This quantity stories inter-disciplinary examine and perspectives on info and its move at diverse degrees of association by means of reputed scientists engaged on the frontier parts of technology. it's a frontier the place physics, arithmetic and biology merge seamlessly, binding jointly really good streams comparable to quantum mechanics, dynamical platforms concept, and arithmetic. the subjects could curiosity a huge cross-section of researchers in existence sciences, physics, cognition, neuroscience, arithmetic and machine technology, in addition to amateurs, familiarizing them with frontier study on realizing info move in dwelling systems.
