Advances in Self-Organizing Systems by George Barnett, Renee Houston

Advances in Self-Organizing Systems  by George Barnett, Renee HoustonQuantity in Basket:none
Code: 1-57273-558-9

Traditionally, the open systems approach has been used to describe communication structures and processes. This book does not deal with social systems from this perspective. Rather, it examines self-organizing systems models that seek to explain the emergence of patterns behavior in systems that are initially in a state of disorganization. This volume examines the models currently under development-autopoiesis, catastrophe theory, fractal geometry, dissipative structures, complexity theory, cellular automata and artificial intelligence-and presents a number of applications to contemporary communication theory.Year: 2005Pages:
