A Brief Description of Gell-Mann’s Lecture and How Intervals May Help to Describe Complexity in the Real World MISHA KOSHELEV 1003 Robinson, El Paso, TX 79902, USA, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org and LUC LONGPRE Department of Computer Science, University of Texas at El Paso, El Paso, TX 79968, USA, e-mail: email@example.com On March 10, 1997, Murray Gell-Mann, the 1969 Nobel-prize winning physicist, presented the 1997 Fessinger-Springer Memorial Lecture on The Quark and the Jaguar: From Simplicity to Complexity.

He is currently a professor and the Co-Chairman of the Science Board of the Santa Fe Institute, the world-renowned institution devoted to the study of complexity. What is complexity: a problem. Gell-Mann started his El Paso talk with the fundamental question: “What is complexity?” As an example of increasing com- plexities, he showed three neckties: a tie with a simple repeating geometric pattern (simple stripes), a tie with a more complicated repeating pattern, and a tie with a non-repeating, complex picture.
