The nature of distributed computation in complex systems has often been described in terms of memory, communication and processing. This thesis presents a complete information-theoretic framework to quantify these operations on information (i.e. information storage, transfer and modification), and in particular their dynamics in space and time. The framework is applied to cellular automata, and delivers important insights into the fundamental nature of distributed computation and the dynamics of complex systems (e.g. that gliders are dominant information transfer agents). Applications to several important network models, including random Boolean networks, suggest that the capability for information storage and coherent transfer are maximized near the critical regime in certain order-chaos phase transitions. Further applications to study and design information structure in the contexts of computational neuroscience and guided self-organization underline the practical utility of the techniques presented here.

of information to all the nodes in the network. The T-interval connected dynamic graph model is a novel model, which we believe opens new avenues for research in the theory of distributed computing in wireless, mobile and dynamic networks. Categories and Subject Descriptors: F [Analysis of Algorithms and Problem Complexity]. Conversely, research in the dynamics of complex systems would be impossible without the widespread availability of powerful and relatively inexpensive computation. Dynamics of complex systems combines a thorough introduction to the basic principles of complexity theory with exemplary applications ranging from neural networks to human civilization.

The metaphor of a potential epigenetic differentiation landscape broadly suggests that during differentiation a stem cell follows the steepest descending gradient toward a stable equilibrium state which represents the final cell type.

Complex systems science is the study of large collections of (generally simple) entities, where the global behaviour is a non-trivial result of the local interactions of the individual elements [1].

This approach seeks a fundamental understanding of how such collective behaviour results from these interactions between simple by: 3. 1 A framework for the local information dynamics of distributed computation in complex systems Joseph T.

The Local Information Dynamics of Distributed Computation in Complex Systems Nominated as outstanding PhD thesis from the University of Sydney (Australia) This thesis develps the first complete framework to quantify the information dynamics of distributed computation, with possible application to biological and bio-inspired systems.

Importantly, this paper along with our related work, can thus be seen to form a complete framework for analysis of the local information dynamics of distributed computation in complex systems: i.e.

the space–time dynamics of how information is stored, transferred and modified in distributed computation.

Distributed computing is a field of computer science that studies distributed systems. A distributed system is a system whose components are located on different networked computers, which communicate and coordinate their actions by passing messages to one another.

Distributed systems allows multiple machine to perform multiple processes. Distributed system example include banki. Lizier et al proposed a framework to localize information-theoretic measures at each spatiotemporal point in the dynamics of complex systems.

In particular, basing on this framework and using local transfer entropy (LTE), they showed that traveling agents (called gliders) carry and transmit information predominantly in the spatiotemporal. Complex Systems Research The key feature of complex systems is that the cooperative interactions of the individual components determine the emergent functionalities, which individually do not exist.

Complex systems need energy to sustain their dynamical and structural behavior. Little changes in one. Designing distributed computing systems is a complex process requiring a solid understanding of the design problems and the theoretical and practical aspects of their solutions.
