Recent observation for scale invariant neural avalanches in the brain have been discussed in details in the scientific literature. We point out, that these results do not necessarily imply that the properties of the underlying neural dynamics are also scale invariant. The reason for this discrepancy lies in the fact that the sampling statistics of observations and experiments is generically biased by the size of the basins of attraction of the processes to be studied. One has hence to precisely…

The AAS model mimics the behavior of integrate-and-fire neurons which propagate activity independently of the input received, as long as the threshold is crossed, and has the potential to influence the width of the scaling regime, in particular in two dimensions.

Exploring Systemic Risks in Systems-of-Systems Within a Multiobjective Decision Framework

A method to mitigate systemic risks through decomposing and coordinating the interconnected subsystems of an S-o-S in a decentralized way is developed by quantifying the level of subsystem interdependency caused by shared states.



The Statistical Mechanics of Phase Transitions

Abstract This article traces the development and study of phase transitions from late last century to the present day. We begin with a brief historical sketch and a description of the statistical

Complex and Adaptive Dynamical Systems: A Primer

This primer has been developed with the aim of conveying a wide range of "commons-sense" knowledge in the field of quantitative complex system science at an introductory level, providing an entry point to this both fascinating and vitally important subject.

This essay enlarges the description of distributions by proposing that ``kings'', i.e., events even beyond the extrapolation of the power law tail, may reveal an information which is complementary and perhaps sometimes even more important than the powerlaw distribution.

We obtain an explicit expression for the defining relation of the deformed WN algebra, DWA(ŝlN)q,t. Using this expression we can show that, in the q → 1 limit, DWA(ŝlN)q,t with t = e 2πi N q k+N N

Vertex routing models

The number of vertices having a nonzero information centrality is found to be extensive/subextensive for models with/without a memory trace in the thermodynamic limit.
