The contributions to this volume are based on selected lectures from the first international workshop on decoherence, information, complexity and entropy (DICE). These contributions reflect and acknowledge the growing importance of common concepts behind seemingly different fields such as quantum mechanics, general relativity and statistical physics in a form accessible to nonspecialist researchers. Many of the presentations include original results, which are published here for the first time.
