A Conversation for Complexity Theory
Candidate Laws of Complexity
Mark Rest Started conversation Mar 4, 2000
If you consider evolution then the organism that uses the least energy to survive will prevail. Could this be expanded to say:
The nth differential of energy with respect to time tends to zero.
For n=1 this is saying solutions that do less work will prevail. For n=2 this is saying that less powerful solutions will prevail.
I do not rule out powerful solutions as sometimes being the best way to a longer term low energy state.
