Excerpt (Disclaimer)


The following text is a small excerpt from the original publication. Within the general INRMM-MiD goal of indexing useful meta-information on INRMM related publications, this excerpt is intended as a handy summary of some potentially interesting aspects of the publication. However, the excerpt is surely incomplete and some key aspects may be missing or their correct interpretation may require the full publication to be carefully read. Please, refer to the full publication for any detail.


Complex Dynamic Systems Theory ▹ The theory that describes how open or closed systems develop through complex processes in which the behavior of the system in its entirety cannot be reduced to the behavior of individual elements of that system.
Dynamical System ▹ A system that changes over time. At any given time, the system is in a particular state, and follows an evolution rule that describes how it changes states over time. Generally, a continuous dynamical system will be described by differential equations.
Emergent Behavior ▹ Aggregate-level attributes of a system that arise from the interactions of its components that cannot be explained by the individual behavior or the sum of these components.
Feedbacks (Positive/Negative) ▹ A feedback is a closed chain of causal interactions between interrelated variables. In a positive feedback, a change in two or more linked variables produces a response in the same direction: more (less) of one variable leads to more (less) of the other variables; while in the negative feedback the response is in the opposite direction.
Monte Carlo Procedure ▹ A procedure for predicting the likely range of trajectories of a given activity by projecting that trajectory forward in time from different initial conditions. Initial conditions are typically selected based on a statistical probability.
Nonlinear Regression Analysis ▹ A statistical approach for estimating the parameters of a nonlinear function.
Transcontextuality ▹ Transcontextuality does not refer to just multiple or overlapping contexts, but to thinking in ways that span and incorporate views from multiple contexts. The idea of Bateson’s “multiple perspectives” or “double description” is based on information from two or more contexts that are used in forming a unified understanding.
Transdisciplinarity ▹ Transdisciplinarity is similar to transcontextuality but refers to the more specific sense of “discipline” as a context of inquiry.

Meta-information Database (INRMM-MiD).
This database integrates a dedicated meta-information database in CiteULike (the CiteULike INRMM Group) with the meta-information available in Google Scholar, CrossRef and DataCite. The Altmetric database with Article-Level Metrics is also harvested. Part of the provided semantic content (machine-readable) is made even human-readable thanks to the DCMI Dublin Core viewer. Digital preservation of the meta-information indexed within the INRMM-MiD publication records is implemented thanks to the Internet Archive.

INRMM-MiD was experimentally established by the Maieutike Research Initiative in 2008 and then improved with the help of several volunteers (with a major technical upgrade in 2011). This new integrated interface is operational since 2014.
