I believe the people of whom you speak are members of the Santa Fe Institute in
New Mexico.  This is a rather new institution (1984) founded to study
non-linear phenomenon in a interdisciplinary manner, although there are very
few permanent members and many temporary post-doc's.  Edward Knapp is the
president of the institution.  For more info, they have a WWW page at  and a lot of info on chaos and complexity in general is
compiled at
