A complex system is a collection of interdependent parts, modules, and/or variables. A perfect understanding of individual parts does not automatically convey a perfect understanding of the whole system's behaviour.
The state of a complex system can't be predicted due to the reason that it's parts dynamically change and every change influences the state of other parts and the overall system.
