The Multiscale Law of Requisite Variety is a scientific law relating, at each scale, the variation in an environment to the variation in internal state that is necessary for effective response by a system. While this law has been used to describe the effectiveness of systems in self-regulation, the consequences for failure have not been formalized. Here we use this law to consider the internal dynamics of an unstructured system, and its response to a structured environment. We find that, due to…

Requisite Variety and Its Implications for the Control of Complex Systems

Recent work on the fundamental processes of regulation in biology (Ashby, 1956) has shown the importance of a certain quantitative relation called the law of requisite variety. After this relation

It is proved that the authors can get some positive data rate that has the same small error probability and also there is an upper bound of the data rate, which means they cannot achieve the data rates with any encoding scheme that has small enough error probability over the upper bound.
