Empirical evidence of self-organization?

Peter van den Besselaar
2002 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
If this is so, it undermines the authors' theoretical claim that the production of knowledge is a self-organizing process.  ...  This claim is empirically supported by a multivariate analysis of documents from core biotechnology journals.  ...  The paper was written during a sabbatical leave from the University of Amsterdam, Department of Psychology, Social Informatics Program.  ...

Disorganization or Self-Organization?

Francesca Recanatini, Randi Ryterman
2000 Social Science Research Network  
The illustrative model and the empirical evidence presented in this paper provide some answers to these questions: self-organizing institutions emerge spontaneously in presence of incentives to coordinate  ...  institutions, by "self-organizing" their activities.  ...

Ownership structure and performance of firms: Empirical evidence from an emerging market

Syed Zakari Ahmed Suleiman, Onipe Adabenege Yahaya
2022 Zenodo  
Companies with high levels of insider control on the Board of Directors tend to underperform those with a more diverse set of directors. The outcome is also supported by descriptive statistics.  ...  As a surrogate for the actual ownership structure, the percentage of shares held by the Board of Directors has been used. Using Cluster analysis, the sample was split into three distinct categories.  ...  Self-organized maps (SOM) and more especially one of the variants called the Kohonen Map (Kohonen, 1982; 1995) have been used for the analysis of data by Eric (2001) in France.  ...

Controlling Self-Organizing Dynamics on Networks Using Models that Self-Organize

Pierre-André Noël, Charles D. Brummitt, Raissa M. D'Souza
2013 Physical Review Letters  
Here we develop a model that captures the essential self-organizing mechanisms of Bak-Tang-Wiesenfeld (BTW) sandpiles on networks, a self-organized critical (SOC) system.  ...  This approach could enable controlling other self-organizing systems.  ...  Self-organizing model.-We now introduce a mechanistic, multitype branching process M BTW that self-organizes to a stationary state c M BTW without using empirical measurements of S BTW .  ...

The self-organizing consciousness

Pierre Perruchet, Annie Vinter
2002 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
that emerges thanks to elementary associative processes that take our conscious representations themselves as the stuff on which they operate, a thesis that we summarize in the concept of Self-Organizing  ...  We propose that the isomorphism generally observed between the representations composing our momentary phenomenal experience and the structure of the world is the end-product of a progressive organization  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This research was supported by the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (UMR CNRS 5022), the University of Bourgogne, and the Region of Bourgogne.  ...

Self-organizing marketplaces

Takatoshi Tabuchi
2009 Journal of Urban Economics  
The number, size, and location of marketplaces or edge cities are analytically obtained.  ...  Furthermore, extending the model to a two-dimensional space, Christaller-Lösch system of hexagonal market areas is analytically derived.  ...  The hexagonal configuration depicted in Figure 3 is self-organized without any presence of social planners.  ...

Empirical evidence reveals the phase diagram of vegetation patterns in Mediterranean drylands [article]

Fernando Meloni, Gilberto Medeiros Nakamura, Cristiano Roberto Fabri Granzotti, Alexandre Souto Martinez
2017 bioRxiv   pre-print
Using satellite images of a typical semiarid shrubland in Southern Spain, we gather vegetation data and argue that vegetation cover can be interpreted by means of a percolation process.  ...  The spatial patterns of vegetation are separated by a first- and a second-order phase transition, in three different spatial scales.  ...  Recently, Berdugo et al. 25 provided empirical evidence that supports our hypothesis of dryland universality.  ...

Self-organization of collaboration networks

José J. Ramasco, S. N. Dorogovtsev, Romualdo Pastor-Satorras
2004 Physical Review E  
We study collaboration networks in terms of evolving, self-organizing bipartite graph models.  ...  The model depends exclusively on basic properties of the network, such as the total number of collaborators and acts of collaboration, the mean size of collaborations, etc.  ...  SELF-ORGANIZED COLLABORATION MODEL A. Definition of the model To understand the common properties of collaboration networks, we propose a self-organized growing model.  ...

Topology selection for self-organizing maps

A Utsugi
1996 Network  
A topology-selection method for self-organizing maps (SOMs) based on empirical Bayesian inference is presented.  ...  In addition, a fast hyperparametersearch algorithm using the derivatives of evidence is presented. The validity of the methods presented is confirmed by simulation experiments.  ...  Introduction The virtue of self-organizing maps (SOMs) [1] is their ability to extract intrinsic topological structure hidden in multidimensional data despite the simplicity of their algorithm.  ...

SELF-STEERED SELF-ORGANIZATION [chapter]

FRED KEIJZER
2003 Studies of Nonlinear Phenomena in Life Science  
What is the difference between these two forms of self-organization?  ...  Kelso in particular defends such a two-component view on self-organization. I will refer to this addition to mere physical self-organization as self-steering.  ...  Kelso claims empirical evidence for this step but is very short in specifying what exactly makes self-organizing processes intrinsically informational.  ...
