Phase Transitions


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


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 [...]
