  • Thermodynamic Efficiency of Interactions in Self-Organizing Systems
    by cxdig (Complexity Digest) on June 16, 2021

    Ramil Nigmatullin and Mikhail Prokopenko Entropy 2021, 23(6), 757 The emergence of global order in complex systems with locally interacting components is most striking at criticality, where small changes in control parameters result in a sudden global reorganization. We study the thermodynamic efficiency of interactions in self-organizing systems, which quantifies the change in the system’s order per unit of work carried out on (or extracted from) the system. We analytically derive the […]

  • Towards an engineering theory of evolution
    by cxdig (Complexity Digest) on June 15, 2021

    Simeon D. Castle, Claire S. Grierson & Thomas E. Gorochowski Nature Communications volume 12, Article number: 3326 (2021) Biological technologies are fundamentally unlike any other because biology evolves. Bioengineering therefore requires novel design methodologies with evolution at their core. Knowledge about evolution is currently applied to the design of biosystems ad hoc. Unless we have an engineering theory of evolution, we will neither be able to meet evolution’s potential as an […]

  • Ranking online social users by their Influence
    by cxdig (Complexity Digest) on June 14, 2021

    Anastasios Giovanidis, Bruno Baynat, Clémence Magnien & Antoine Vendeville IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking ( Early Access ) (2021) DOI: 10.1109/TNET.2021.3085201 Date of Publication: 08 June 2021 This work introduces an original mathematical model to analyze the diffusion of posts within a generic online social platform. The main novelty is that each user is not simply considered as a node on the social graph, but is further equipped with his/her […]
