Discrete chaotic dynamics (DCD) of living and thinking systems
are presented in a form of networks of
interacting agents with the abilities of energy and information
exchange. Special dynamical principles followed by the systems of
basic discrete time and space difference equations are introduced.
behavior of complex living and thinking systems is presented by the
different patterns generated by the DCD algorithms. Artificial
life and brain systems based on DCD principles and mathematical
models are proposed.
