Principle of least action and convergence of systems towards state of closure

  title={Principle of least action and convergence of systems towards state of closure},
  author={Atanu Chatterjee},
A natural process is defined as an act, by which a system organizes itself with time. Any natural process drives a system to a state of greater organization. Co-existence of a system in states of maximum organization as well as maximum action forms the core idea of the paper. Organization is a progressive change that gradually converge a system towards a state of closure. To understand this in detail, major influences have been drawn from the Principle of Least Action and, it allows us to see… 

Mechanism of organization increase in complex systems

A model of positive feedback between action efficiency and the total amount of action in a complex system, based on a system of ordinary differential equations, which leads to an exponential growth with time of each and a power law relation between the two is presented.

Thermodynamics of action and organization in a system

This article tries to develop precise, mathematically rigorous definitions of the commonly used terms in this context, such as action, organization, system, process, etc., and in parallel argues the behavior of the system from the first principles.

Free Energy Rate Density and Self-organization in Complex Systems

This work connects FERD to the principle of least action for complex systems, driving their increase of action efficiency and proposes size-density and complexity-density rules in addition to the established size-complexity one.

Exponential Self-Organization and Mooreźs Law

The question of how complex systems become more organized and efficient with time is open. Examples are the formation of elementary particles from pure energy, the formation of atoms from particles,

Exponential Self-Organization and Moore's Law: Measures and Mechanisms

This work searches for global measures of self-organizing systems, that are predictable and do not depend on the substrate of the system studied, and provides insights about the underlying physical essence of the Moore's law and the multiple logistic growth observed in technological progress.

Action and Power Efficiency in Self-Organization: The Case for Growth Efficiency as a Cellular Objective in Escherichia coli

The efficiency of a metabolic network in transformation of substrates to new biomass is explored, and a new objective function simulating growth efficiency is introduced, and it is suggested that the maximal growth efficiency can be considered a plausible optimization criterion in metabolic modeling for E. coli.

Coexisting Ordered States, Local Equilibrium-like Domains, and Broken Ergodicity in a Non-turbulent Rayleigh-Bénard Convection at Steady-state

This study provides new experimental data on the non-trivial nature of thermal fluctuations when stable complex convective structures emerge and correlates the spatial ordering of the convective cells with the evolution of the system’s temperature manifold.
