Paul, I'm not getting the connection between determinism and negative entropy although I'm happy to discuss almost any subject. I will say in my mind that Laplace's equation and Hamilton's equation are two of the most beautiful constructs in mathema…
In 1979 I rolled into Coco Beach, Florida as a new Air Force recruit. I would work at AFTAC which monitors nuclear events. I was assigned to TGS, the geophysical division, as a seismologist.
It was the end of one era and the beginning of another. W…
Proposed Principles
Negative entropy is more complex than positive entropy.
I submit that Maslow's hierarchy of needs is a good model of negative entropy, particularly his later models. See https://www.simplypsychology.org/maslow.html . Note the a…
Please know I consider myself a babe on the topic of the climate, but I want to help by developing my own understanding. I am very concerned that climate scientist are worried about anthropogenic warming (thanks @WebHubTel). As a person with an syst…
@WebHubTel - I worked with people with a PhD. in Geophysics, but they still thought in the box. So I can easily see someone not considering the full dynamics of the moon. Hopefully we can provide a more mature discussion because of our system's pers…
Wow, great memories! I was a seismologist in the USAF 1978 - 1981 at AFTAC monitoring the nuclear test ban treaty. We were probably a decade ahead of anyone else with our unlimited budget.
Creed and Quest by Nicholas B. Tufillaro
The close connection between maps and flows - Poincare maps and suspensions - gives rise to **The Discrete Creed:
Anything that happens in a flow also happens in a (lower-dimensional) discrete dynami…

I am meditating on how the idea of a system of ODEs generalizes to the case of a manifold.
1 roll the ODEs up into a matrix function
2 determine a fixed point/equilibrium
3 determine symmetry
This would be my current appr…
Hello @WebHubTel, thanks for the feedback. I'm just trying to fulfill a need I perceive. My only game plan at the moment is to network to obtain help from interested parties.
In 1986 I had a series of conversations with Stephen Wolfram about dynamical systems, but Wolfram didn't tell me where he got his ideas, so I had to do a decade of digging. Here's some of the main points I found documented:
Dynamics in mathematics…
@DavidTanzer thanks for the info on Stochastic modelling for systems biology. I purchased a copy and would be happy to be in a study group if anyone is interested.
Howdy! @DavidTanzer mentioned policies that the Azimuth Project was created to support. But I can't find the organizational material that will help me to successfully work with others here. Can I please get a reading list? Thanks
Thanks for the intro @DavidTanzer. I'm a complete newbie when it comes to Petri nets, but I am retired and can devote plenty of time to learning. I'm also new to the Azimuth Project, so I need to learn how things works here.
My question is what wou…
