Meta-Structures as MultiDynamics Systems Approach. Some introductory outlines. (Invited Paper)
Gianfranco Minati, Ignazio Licata
We consider how processes of dynamical, multiple, overlapping, interfering, correlated interactions establishing collective systems are analytically intractable. The meta-structures project has the purpose of using mesoscopic (rather than macroscopic or statistical) representations to allow interventions which can suitably modify various properties acquired by emergent collective behaviours. We consider mesoscopic variables and mesoscopic properties as suitable for representing such systems of interactions. Properties of collective systems, such as coherence(s), are considered to be suitably represented by mesoscopic dynamics. Finally, mesoscopic interventions are considered as suitable for acting upon collective systems.
