The monograph of Prof. Costas Demetzos seeks to highlight the silent and soundless evolutionary processes and phenomena that dynamically unfold in nature. The author presents the basic concepts of complex dynamic systems and describes the laws of thermodynamics and quantomechanics. He explains the creation of life via the self-assembly process and provides an in-depth description of the organization of the liquid crystalline state of matter in thermodynamically metastable phases that promote the evolution of life.
