Self-Organization & Thermodynamics


Self-Organization & Thermodynamics Self-organization can be defined as the spontaneous creation of a globally coherent pattern out of local interactions.View Source As such self-organization explores a new approach to understanding the patterns of organization seen in the world around us. Probably the oldest and most fundamental question there is to ask in science is, [...]
