Thinking Allowed – Complexity on the BBC

A quick note for anyone who catches this in time.  Thinking Allowed, the BBC Radio 4 programme that looks at research on human behaviour, institutions and conventions (what’s not to like about any of that?), will be looking at social applications of complexity theory this afternoon – 4pm BST.

From the weekly notes:

I’ll also be talking about how an advance in theoretical physics which has been described as ‘more exciting than Relativity’, can be applied to such commonplace social situations as traffic jams and patterns of residential segregation.

Oprah and Complexity Theory. At 4 o’clock today (or after the midnight news on Sunday). And now also on podcast.

If I’ve got my links right, you should be able to listen to it again here in future.  Or subscribe to the podcast at
