Morphological stability and identity in self-organizing systems

  title={Morphological stability and identity in self-organizing systems},
  author={Igor Strozzi},
In this essay I aim to investigate and discuss the process through which bundles of things “self-organize” into other things. In particular, I engage in such investigation by trying to apply a framework of analysis of structural stability of morphological forms to the context of a con-tinuous cellular automata known as Lenia , which displays great diversity of distinguishable, individuated complex subsystems, who behave autonomously and in lifelike manner (such subsystems are often known as… 



Self-Organization and Artificial Life

The fundamental aspects of self-organization are discussed and the main usages within three primary ALife domains are listed, namely “soft” (mathematical/computational modeling), “hard’ (physical robots), and “wet”/chemical/biological systems) ALife.

Self-organization is a process by which larger scale (macro) order is formed in a system through the promotion of fluctuations at a smaller (micro) scale via processes inherent in the system

An introduction to complex systems

This volume will have important implications for how archaeologists understand the dynamics of culture change and how they think about chronological stages, unique events, and the role of human agents.

Beyond Atomism and Holism—the Concept of the Holon

This is an exercise in general systems theory—which seems to be all the more appropriate as its founding father sits next to me. Ludwig von Bertalanffy launched that venture here in Alpbach twenty

Autopoiesis and Cognition

A mathematical model of a 3D tesselation automaton, considered as a minimal example of autopoiesis, is presented, and a thesis T1 is proposed: An autopoietic system can be described as a random dynamical system, which is defined only within its organized autopOietic domain.

A new system of artificial life called Lenia (from Latin lenis "smooth"), a two-dimensional cellular automaton with continuous space-time-state and generalized local rule, which supports a great diversity of complex autonomous patterns or "lifeforms" bearing resemblance to real-world microscopic organisms.

Lenia and Expanded Universe

Experimental extensions of Lenia, a continuous cellular automata family capable of producing lifelike self-organizing autonomous patterns, are reported, finding new phenomena like polyhedral symmetries, individuality, self-replication, emission, growth by ingestion, and the emergence of "virtual eukaryotes" that possess internal division of labor and type differentiation.

Principles of Systems Science

This pioneering text provides a comprehensive introduction to systems structure, function, and modeling as applied in all fields of science and engineering and captures the trend towards interdisciplinary research and problem solving.

Information and Self-Organization

The process of “self-organization” takes place in open and complex systems that acquire spatio-temporal or functional structures without specific ordering instructions from the outside. [...]

Logical Approach to Systems Theory

A comparison of Canonical system model as realization and its structures and its properties on morphism and universality and systems properties shows similarity of system models and their structures.
