Phase Transitions Phase transitions and bifurcations are periods of qualitative and often rapid change in the dynamics of a nonlinear system’s state.View Source They involve positive feedback loops that drive the system far-from-equilibrium and result in exponential change and a pattern of development called punctuated equilibrium where periods of stability are punctuated by phases [...]

Mean Field Theory

2019-01-11T14:15:21+00:00

Mean Field Theory Mean field theory comes from the domain of physics and in particular statistical mechanics where researchers are dealing with many interacting variables, such as gas molecules in a chamber. The main idea of mean field theory is to replace all interactions to any one body with an average interaction. This reduces any [...]
