Ancient food webs developed modern structure soon after mass extinction

Ancient food webs developed modern structure soon after mass extinction | Sistemas complejos | Scoop.it
Researchers from the Santa Fe Institute and the Smithsonian Institution have pieced together a highly detailed picture of feeding relationships among 700 mammal, bird, reptile, fish, insect, and plant species from a 48 million year old lake and forest ecosystem.

Their analysis of fossilized remains from the Messel deposit near Frankfurt, Germany, provides the most compelling evidence to date that ancient food webs were organized much like modern food webs. Their paper describing the research appears online and open access this week in Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences.

Eli Levine's curator insight, March 20, 6:37 PM

There is, indeed, not much that is new in this world.

 

One would think that humans would learn to live in relative harmony with nature.


However, I do not think that the brain types of those with real political power (everyone from public to private elites), as well as the brain types of the people in the general pool of society are capable of doing this at this time.

 

Therefore, we are going to kill ourselves off in mass droves.

 

And we probably won't learn our lessons, in spite of the damage that we're going to inflict on ourselves.

 

Think about it.

How Can the Study of Complexity Transform Our Understanding of the World?

How Can the Study of Complexity Transform Our Understanding of the World? | Sistemas complejos | Scoop.it

The “study of complexity” refers to the attempt to find common principles underlying the behavior of complex systems—systems in which large collections of components interact in nonlinear ways. Here, the term nonlinear implies that the system can’t be understood simply by understanding its individual components; nonlinear interactions cause the whole to be “more than the sum of its parts.”

Wonderful and clarifying text.

Lorien Pratt's curator insight, January 22, 11:20 PM

One of my favorite complexity authors.  An excerpt: "In the past it was widely assumed that such phenomena are hard to predict because the underlying processes are highly complex, and that random factors must play a key role.  However, Complex Systems science—especially the study of dynamics and chaos—have shown that complex behavior and unpredictability can arise in a system even if the underlying rules are extremely simple and completely deterministic.  Often, the key to complexity is the iteration over time of simple, though nonlinear, interaction rules among the system’s components."


This insight is at the core of Decision Intelligence, which adds an understanding of these emergent behaviors to the usual big data/predictive analytics/optimization stack.

Barabasi argues that, rather than being random,
humans actually act in predictable patterns. We go along for long
periods of quiet routine followed suddenly by loud bursts of activity.
Barabasi demonstrates that these breaks in routine, or "bursts," are
present in all aspects of our existence— in the way we write emails,
spend our money, manage our health, form ideas. Barabasi has even
found "burstiness" in our webpage clicking activity and the online
news cycle."

Multidisciplinary applications of complex networks modeling, simulation, visualization, and analysis

(...) complex systems are characterized by the interactions between their numerous elements. The word ‘complex’ comes from the Latin plexus which means entwined. In other words, it is difficult to correlate global properties of complex systems with the properties of the individual constituent components. This is primarily because the interactions between these individual elements partly determine the future states of the system (Gershenson 2013). If these interactions are not included in the developed models, the models would not be an accurate reflection of the modelled phenomenon.

The Math of Segregation » American Scientist

The Math of Segregation » American Scientist | Sistemas complejos | Scoop.it

In the 1960s Schelling devised a simple model in which a mixed group of people spontaneously segregates by race even though no one in the population desires that outcome. Initially, black and white families are randomly distributed. At each step in the modeling process the families examine their immediate neighborhood and either stay put or move elsewhere depending on whether the local racial composition suits their preferences. The procedure is repeated until everyone finds a satisfactory home (or until the simulator’s patience is exhausted).

Exactly scale-free scale-free networks

There is mounting evidence of the apparent ubiquity of scale-free networks among complex systems. Many natural and physical systems exhibit patterns of interconnection that conform, approximately, to the structure expected of a scale-free network. We propose an efficient algorithm to generate representative samples from the space of all networks defined by a particular (scale-free) degree distribution. Using this algorithm we are able to systematically explore that space with some surprising results: in particular, we find that preferential attachment growth models do not yield typical realizations and that there is a certain latent structure among such networks --- which we loosely term "hub-centric". We provide a method to generate or remove this latent hub-centric bias --- thereby demonstrating exactly which features of preferential attachment networks are atypical of the broader class of scale free networks. Based on these results we are also able to statistically determine whether experimentally observed networks are really typical realizations of a given degree distribution (scale-free degree being the example which we explore). In so doing we propose a surrogate generation method for complex networks, exactly analogous the the widely used surrogate tests of nonlinear time series analysis.

Exact Complexity: The Spectral Decomposition of Intrinsic Computation

We give exact formulae for a wide family of complexity measures that capture the organization of hidden nonlinear processes. The spectral decomposition of operator-valued functions leads to closed-form expressions involving the full eigenvalue spectrum of the mixed-state presentation of a process's epsilon-machine causal-state dynamic. Measures include correlation functions, power spectra, past-future mutual information, transient and synchronization informations, and many others. As a result, a direct and complete analysis of intrinsic computation is now available for the temporal organization of finitary hidden Markov models and nonlinear dynamical systems with generating partitions and for the spatial organization in one-dimensional systems, including spin systems, cellular automata, and complex materials via chaotic crystallography.

One rule of life: Are we poised on the border of order?

WHEN physicists take an interest in the living world, some biologists fear the worst. After all, goes the bad joke, there's only so much you can gain by modelling a cow as a sphere. But one crucial idea from physics may hold valuable insights into complex biological behaviour in everything from birds to gene networks. There is increasing evidence that many systems we observe in living things are close to what's called a critical point – they sit on a knife-edge, precariously poised between order and disorder. Odd as it may sound, this strategy could confer a variety of benefits, in particular the flexibility to deal with a complex and unpredictable environment.

Agent-based modeling and simulation of emergent behavior in air transportation

Agent-based modeling and simulation of emergent behavior in air transportation | Sistemas complejos | Scoop.it

Commercial aviation is feasible thanks to the complex socio-technical air transportation system, which involves interactions between human operators, technical systems, and procedures. In view of the expected growth in commercial aviation, significant changes in this socio-technical system are in development both in the USA and Europe. Such a complex socio-technical system may generate various types of emergent behavior, which may range from simple emergence, through weak emergence, up to strong emergence. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate that agent-based modeling and simulation allows identifying changed and novel rare emergent behavior in this complex socio-technical system.

Chaos Forgets and Remembers: Measuring Information Creation, Destruction, and Storage

The hallmark of deterministic chaos is that it creates information—the rate being given by the Kolmogorov-Sinai metric entropy. Since its introduction half a century ago, the metric entropy has been used as a unitary quantity to measure a system’s intrinsic unpredictability. Here, we show that it naturally decomposes into two structurally meaningful components: A portion of the created information—the ephemeral information—is forgotten and a portion—the bound information—is remembered. The bound information is a new kind of intrinsic computation that differs fundamen- tally from information creation: it measures the rate of active information storage. We show that it can be directly and accurately calculated via symbolic dynamics, revealing a hitherto unknown richness in how dynamical systems compute.

Modeling complex systems with adaptive networks

Modeling complex systems with adaptive networks | Sistemas complejos | Scoop.it

Adaptive networks are a novel class of dynamical networks whose topologies and states coevolve. Many real-world complex systems can be modeled as adaptive networks, including social networks, transportation networks, neural networks and biological networks. In this paper, we introduce fundamental concepts and unique properties of adaptive networks through a brief, non-comprehensive review of recent literature on mathematical/computational modeling and analysis of such networks. We also report our recent work on several applications of computational adaptive network modeling and analysis to real-world problems, including temporal development of search and rescue operational networks, automated rule discovery from empirical network evolution data, and cultural integration in corporate merger.

Social Factors in Epidemiology

Despite the invention of control measures like vaccines, infectious diseases remain part of human existence. Ideas, sentiments, or information can also be contagious. Such social contagion is akin to biological contagion: Both spread through a replication process that is blind to the consequences for the individual or population, and if each person transmits to more than one person, the explosive power of exponential growth creates an epidemic. Social contagions may cause irrational “fever.” Isaac Newton, having lost £20,000 in the speculative South Sea Bubble, commented that he could “calculate the movement of the stars, but not the madness of men”. Systems in which both contagion types are coupled to one another—an infectious disease spreading by biological contagion and a social contagion concerning the disease—offer unique scientific challenges and are increasingly important for public health.

Nonlinear-map model for the control of an airplane schedule

We study the dynamics and control of an airplane in air transportation between two airports. The dynamic models are presented for the airplane schedule. The dynamics of an airplane is described by the piecewise map and delayed map models. The characteristics of the nonlinear maps are studied analytically and numerically. The airplane displays the complex motion in the unstable region. The motion of the airplane depends on the quantity of goods, the control method, and the delay. It is shown that the control delay has an important effect on the motion.
