Papers are grouped in three areas:
- discrete multivariate modeling (reconstructability analysis): static and dynamic set- and information-theoretic methods for nominal or nonlinearly-related variables; log-linear modeling; data-mining; structure and dynamics of automata.
- "artificial life"/theoretical biology: the evolution of cooperation, evolutionary dynamics and adaptation in agent-environment systems; cellular automata and random nets; genetic algorithm optimization; protein folding, macromolecular crystallography.
- systems theory and philosophy: systems theory and contemporary theories of complexity and complex adaptive systems as attempts to construct an "exact and scientific metaphysics"; the ontology of problems; topics in the philosophy of science; science and religion; systems ideas and sustainability.
