Social behaviours emerge from the exchange of information among individuals—constrained by and reciprocally influencing the structure of information flows.

Despite global connectivity, societies seem to be increasingly polarized and fragmented. This phenomenon is rooted in the underlying complex structure and dynamics of social systems.

According to a recent report from the United Nations, over a million species could soon face extinction. This would be a staggering loss. Understanding biodiversity is a key to preserving it.

Group decision making occurs through a sequence of communications that convey personal attitudes and preferences among members of the group.

We find that, due to its inability to respond, a completely unstructured system is inherently unstable to the formation of structure. And in general, any system without structure above a certain scale is unable to withstand structure arising above that scale.

Advancing our understanding of the origins, types and competitive strength of different kinds of power may yield a scaffolding for understanding historical processes and mechanisms for winning or avoiding conflicts.

Motivated by the troubling rise of political extremism and instability throughout the democratic world, we present a novel mathematical characterization of the nature of political representation in democratic elections.

Development requires consistency between a country’s wages and consumption, investment and returns. If these internal financial flows are inconsistent, external investments in development and foreign aid will often exit the country to purchase imported goods.

On the fifth of February, 2018, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 1,175.21 points, the largest single-day fall in history in raw point terms.

We consider the renormalization of quenched bond disorder in the Ising model in the limit that it is sparse—localized and vanishing in the thermodynamic limit.

A new Ebola outbreak has been confirmed in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, with 44 cases reported as of May 15, 2018, including one in a major urban center. NECSI's research from the 2014 outbreak in West Africa provides important information and guidance.

A recent scientific paper from the NECSI demonstrates, using mathematical proofs, why a different approach to science can result in much more rapid progress. In doing so, the paper shows that the scientific methodology can be analyzed scientifically — a science of science.

Why is the space of possibilities important? It tells you what you can and cannot do. It let’s you know how you can go from one place to another. And for a specific individual it tells you important things about what they actually do compared to what is possible in principle.

Bioenergy is booming as nations seek to cut their greenhouse gas emissions. The European Union declared biofuels to be carbon-neutral, triggering a surge in wood use. But do biofuels actually reduce emissions?
