Toward a promise of tomorrow using interconnecting theory to re-connect [Charles Francois, ISSS 1998 Paper Session, July 20/98]

[Paper session, July 20/98, 5:00 p.m.]

Charles Francois, editor, International Encyclopedia of Cybernetics and Systemics

Was going to speak about a theory of interconnections (as a research idea, not a real paper!)

1. How do interactions become established? 2. Which types of interactions appear first?

3. How do some interactions become stabilized, while others become destroyed?

4. How are the interactions between the levels of complexity? 5. Case of simultaneous interactions: 6. Pathology of interconnects: too many or too few?

Could then study:

Would like to discuss as a rich field for research.


How does this work happen when interconnections break down? Interaction between parts:
