Dynamics of subsystems

It is our view, that the lack of a proper definition of a subsystem hinders all approaches to studying complex behavior of dynamical systems.

We attempt to develop a language/calculus of subsystems, that could possibly be used to introduce rigorous notions of complexity, replication, self-organization and stability, and to formulate and prove statements involving above notions.

I will explain how we use information-theoretic approach to define temporal dimension of a subsystem and I will prove some simple theorems.

This will be an exploratory talk and I hope for a (positive, of course) feedback.
