Emergence in Complex Systems
Author(s): Zundong Zhang

Subject(s): CX.1

Category: Article


Emergence denotes the connection between constituent- and system- levels,that is treated as the core concept in complex systems by researchers from all disciplines, which means it is to understand emergence that is the key to understand complex systems and to do further research on specific systems as well. Therefore, the concepts on the constituent- and system- levels, including systemsí» states, behaviors and structures, and constituent sub-systemsí» states, behaviors and interactions among them, are delivered in this paper. Furthermore, the structural paradigms, such as Emergence Mechanisms, Emergence Attractors and Emergence Patterns are presented to give a formal and self-contained approach to completely describe the formation and to model the dynamics of emergence. The work covered by the paper provides a novel map and theoretical supports for study on complex system theory, and modeling and control of specific systems.
