Information Adaptation: The Interplay Between Shannon by Hermann Haken

By Hermann Haken

This monograph demonstrates the interaction among Shannon details and semantic info in cognition. It indicates that Shannon’s details acts as motive force for the formation of semantic details; and vice versa, particularly, that semantic info participates within the formation of Shannonian info. The authors express that during cognition, Shannonian and semantic details are interrelated as facets of a cognitive approach termed as information adaptation. within the latter the mind/brain adapts to the surroundings by means of the deflating and/or inflating of the knowledge conveyed by way of the surroundings. within the means of info version, quantitative adaptations in Shannon’s details entail diverse meanings whereas varied meanings have an effect on the volume of data. The e-book illustrates the above conceptually and mathematically via connection with 3 cognitive strategies: trend popularity, face studying and the popularity of a relocating object.

Synergetics: an introduction

This ebook is an often-requested reprint of 2 vintage texts by way of H. Haken: "Synergetics. An creation" and "Advanced Synergetics". Synergetics, an interdisciplinary study software initiated through H. Haken in 1969, offers with the systematic and methodological method of the swiftly transforming into box of complexity.

Robust Design: A Repertoire of Biological, Ecological, and Engineering Case Studies (Santa Fe Institute Studies on the Sciences of Complexity)

Powerful layout brings jointly sixteen chapters through an eminent staff of authors in quite a lot of fields offering elements of robustness in organic, ecological, and computational platforms. The volme is the 1st to deal with robustness in organic, ecological, and computational platforms. it's an outgrowth of a brand new study software on robustness on the Sante Fe Institute based via the David and Lucile Packard beginning.

Self-organized biological dynamics & nonlinear control

The growing to be influence of nonlinear technological know-how on biology and drugs is essentially altering our view of residing organisms and affliction methods. This publication introduces the appliance to biomedicine of a large diversity of thoughts from nonlinear dynamics, corresponding to self-organization, complexity, coherence, stochastic resonance, fractals, and chaos.

Semi-Autonomous Networks: Effective Control of Networked Systems through Protocols, Design, and Modeling

This thesis analyzes and explores the layout of managed networked dynamic platforms - dubbed semi-autonomous networks. The paintings techniques the matter of powerful keep an eye on of semi-autonomous networks from 3 fronts: protocols that are run on person brokers within the community; the community interconnection topology layout; and effective modeling of those usually large-scale networks.

Drawings by Heinz von Foerster How is the above distinction between trivial versus non-trivial machines referring to complex versus simple systems and then to information? e. any chance events (“stochastics”) are excluded. In contrast, as we know from synergetics, in all complex and self-organizing systems, stochastic influences are crucial for triggering a process of self-organization. (2) Von Foerster explicitly excludes memory beyond a “holding” time Δt of states z. , limit cycles so that a specific state Z0 reappears again and again.

Nonadaptability is thus a property of closed, simple and mechanistic systems. © The Author(s) 2015 H. Haken and J. 2 Complexity and Information The link between the theories of complexity and information follows directly from the very definition of Shannon’s information as entropy. Shannon has used the notion entropy in the sense given to it in thermodynamics. In the latter entropy is a property of closed systems that tend to evolve from order to maximum entropy (disorder); as such Shannon information refers to nonadaptive communication systems.

E. giving room to more interpretations, or, mathematically in terms of the synergetic computer model (Chaps. 5 and 7) it means opening access to the relevant attractor, that is, order parameter (Fig. 2). Clearly, while reading the “puzzle” of Fig. 4 we are simultaneously learning how to adapt the numbers. 2 A Model of Hybrid Images Following our information adaptation model (Chap. 7 below), we have been able to cast our qualitative discussion of the Einstein/Monroe hybrid image into a detailed mathematical model that takes the band-pass filters into account (Haken and Portugali, submitted).
