Complexity.PDF - Complexity.PDF - "Measures of complexity"
Three questions that researchers frequently ask to quantify the
complexity of the thing (house, bacterium, problem, process, investment
scheme) under study are
1. How hard is it to describe?
2. How hard is it to create?
3. What is its degree of organization?
Here is a list of some measures of complexity grouped according to the question that they
try to answer. Measures within a group are typically closely related quantities.
