New mathematical and computational contributions have already continued to grow in number, thanks primarily to scholars in statistical physics and computer science. However, human complexics must be seen as multimethodological, combining quantitative-computation methodologies and more qualitative methodologies aimed at understanding the mental and emotional world of people.
