The joy of the investigation of complex systems


It has happened several times that we assumed to fully understand a chemical kinetic system; only one or two details did not match to the others. When these details were scrutinized, the investigated system turned out to be more complex than originally thought. However, in this more complex system all details fitted to each other. The system itself became more interesting when we knew more about it, as if we inspected it from a higher dimension
