Noisy phenomena appear in all areas of science, and whether noise is beneficial or detrimental, understanding its cause and effect is crucial. However, in complex systems, it's usually difficult to isolate the effects of noise or the randomness from variations in complex but deterministic "non-noisy" behavior. This combination of effects often results in unexpected or deceptive behavior, requiring new perspectives to define the various interactions that can occur.
