By Frederic Geurts

This self-contained monograph is an built-in research of commonly used platforms outlined via iterated kinfolk utilizing the 2 paradigms of abstraction and composition. This comprises the complexity of a few state-transition structures and improves figuring out of advanced or chaotic phenomena rising in a few dynamical structures. the most insights and result of this paintings drawback a structural kind of complexity bought by means of composition of easy interacting platforms representing antagonistic attracting behaviors. This complexity is expressed within the evolution of composed structures (their dynamics) and within the kin among their preliminary and ultimate states (the computation they realize). The theoretical effects are demonstrated via examining dynamical and computational houses of low-dimensional prototypes of chaotic platforms, high-dimensional spatiotemporally complicated platforms, and formal structures.

Dynamics of Relations Juxtaposition of symbols stands for concatenation; exponentiation stands for multiple concatenation. For any sequence s of length at least n, s|n represents its prefix of length n. For any bi-infinite s ∈ X Z, we denote the subsequence s0 s1 s2 · · · by s+ and s0 s−1 s−2 · · · by s− . g. [9]). The dynamical system imposes a temporal ordering on the underlying space.

The iterative evolution from a state can be described from two viewpoints, emphasizing the intrinsic nondeterminism of relations at the point-level, or by means of multi-valued functions and set-transformers at the set-level. 1 Point-Level Nondeterministic Dynamics Let (X, f ) be a RDS, and x ∈ X. If there exists a y such that (x, y) ∈ f , then f x −→ y represents a possible iteration-step from x, and many other evolutions can coexist; f is regarded as a nondeterministic function from X to X. The subsequent steps of the dynamics can be defined using this view, leading to the following definitions.
