Critical Slowing Down

Critical slowing down is the theory that in cases where a system is close to a critical tipping point the recovery rate should decrease. It occurs because a system’s internal stabilizing forces...

Complex Adaptive Systems

Complex Adaptive Systems A complex adaptive system is a special class of complex system that has the capacity for adaptation. Like all complex systems, they consist of many elements, what are...

Adaptive Systems

Adaptive Systems We can define adaptation as the capacity for a system to change its state in response to some change within its environment. An adaptive system then is a system that can change...

Schemata

Schemata A schema is a conceptual pattern or structure that organizes categories of information and the relationships among them. The term derives from psychology but is used within complex...

Simple Rules

Simple Rules One of the key premises of complex systems theory is that global coordination and complex behavior can emerge out of very simple rules governing the interaction between agents on the...

Cellular Automaton

Cellular Automaton Cellular automata are algorithmic models that use computation to iterate on very simple rules. In so doing, these very simple rules can create complex emergent phenomena...

Feedback & Externalities

Feedback & Externalities A feedback loop defines a relationship of interdependency between two or more components where the change in state of one element affects that of another, with this...

Evolution

Evolution Evolution is a process of adaptation that operates on the macro-level of a system. Adaptation is the capacity to generate a response to some change within the environment. Evolution is...
