When Can We Call a System Self-Organizing? [chapter]

Carlos Gershenson, Francis Heylighen
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We discuss ontological issues we face when studying self-organizing systems, and analyse when designing and controlling artificial self-organizing systems is useful.  ...  We do not attempt to provide yet another definition of selforganization, but explore the conditions under which we can model a system as self-organizing.  ...  We believe that this discussion on when and how to best model a system as selforganizing should be carried further in the artificial life community, since we all study and build systems from a self-organizing  ...

2005 International Journal of Advanced Robotic Systems  
The principle we are looking for, which we wish to employ within our self-organizing systems, is called 'synergy' (Corning, P., 1995; Lucas, C., 2004c) .  ...  We thus can start off with 'parts' of appropriate types for our AI purposes, called 'agents', and let a collection of these coevolve and self-organize, bottom-up, to meet our needs.  ...

Modular self-organization [article]

Bruno Scherrer
2006 arXiv   pre-print
Our fundamental idea is that the former is a good framework for addressing autonomy whereas the latter allows to tackle self-organizing problems.  ...  We combine results from two apparently uncorrelated domains: Autonomous planning through Markov Decision Processes and a General Data Clustering Approach using a kernel-like method.  ...  Kernel Clustering will indeed lead to a generalization of the state aggregation technique, which we will interpret as a modular self-organization procedure.  ...

Optimal self-organization

Dirk Helbing, Tamás Vicsek
1999 New Journal of Physics  
Using concepts from non-equilibrium thermodynamics and game theoretical ideas, we generalize this finding to an even wider class of self-organizing systems which have the ability to reach a state of maximal  ...  This principle is expected to be relevant for driven systems in physics like sheared granular media, but it is also applicable to biological, social, and economic systems, for which only a limited number  ...  Therefore, the phenomenon of "self-organized optimality" or "optimal self-organization", as we call it, is expected to be quite common in nature.  ...

Self-organized criticality

Per Bak, Chao Tang, Kurt Wiesenfeld
1988 Physical review. A, General physics  
We show that certain extended dissipative dynamical systems naturally evolve into a critical state, with no characteristic time or length scales.  ...  The temporal "fingerprint" of the self-organized critical state is the presence of flicker noise or 1/f noise; its spatial signature is the emergence of scaleinvariant (fractal) structure.  ...  A lower slope III.

Self-Organizing Systems [chapter]

Wolfgang Banzhaf

Complexity and Self-Organization [chapter]

Francis Heylighen
2009 Encyclopedia of Library and Information Sciences, Third Edition  
this article introduces some of the main concepts and methods of the science studying complex, self-organizing systems and networks, in a non-technical manner.  ...  However, the system tends to self-organize, in the sense that local interactions eventually produce global coordination and synergy.  ...  Self-organization then means that the system reaches an attractor, i.e. a part of the state space that it can enter but not leave.  ...
