A complex adaptive system is a type of complex system that has many parts, called agents, that are capable of autonomous adaptation according to their local rules

Complex adaptive systems are all around us from financial markets to ecosystems to the human immune system and even civilization itself, they consist of many agents that are acting and reacting to each other’s behavior, out of this often chaotic set of interactions emerges global patterns of organization in a dynamic world of constant change and evolution where nothing is fixed.

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 become weaker near the point where they break and the s

Complex Adaptive Systems Ecosystems are classical examples of complex adaptive systems with many creatures acting and reacting to each other's behavior 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 called agents, with these [...]

Adaptive Systems Creeper snail after rain on the grass. A snail is an example of an adaptive system that is capable of receiving information, processing it and generating a response in order to alter its state. We can define adaptation as the capacity for a system to change its state in response to [...]

Regulatory Systems The temperature regulator on a heater is an example of a control system Within systems theory, a control system or regulatory system is a specialized subsystem that is designed to monitor and regulate the behavior and operation of the broader system it is a part of in order to maintain its [...]
