The adaptive market hypothesis (AMH), as proposed by Andrew Lo, is an attempt to reconcile economic theories based on the efficient market hypothesis (which implies that markets are efficient) with behavioral economics, by applying the principles of evolution to financial interactions: competition, adaptation and natural selection/5.

In their book Viruses as Complex Adaptive Systems, SFI External Professors Ricard Solé (Universitat Pompeu Fabra) and Santiago F. Elena (Spain National Research Council) employ biology, physics, and mathematics to understand the impact of viral robustness and pervasiveness. “Viruses are everywhere,” says Solé. Unraveling the origin of biodiversity is fundamental for understanding our biosphere. This book clarifies how adaptive processes, rather than geographic isolation, can cause speciation. Adaptive speciation occurs when biological interactions induce disruptive selection and the evolution of assortative mating, thus triggering the splitting of lineages.5/5(1).
Molecular Evolution and Adaptive Radiation surveys recent advances in the study of adaptive radiation by bringing together a set of international experts investigating a wide range of organisms in a variety of geographic settings. Givnish and Sytsma show how family trees derived from molecular characters can be used to analyze the origin and pattern of ecological . Evolution of Cognitive Networks and Self-Adaptive Communication Systems overviews innovative technologies combined for the formation of self-aware, self-adaptive, and self-organizing networks. By aiming to inform the research community and the related industry of solutions for cognitive networks, this book is essential for researchers.

The Evolution of Adaptive Systems provides an interdisciplinary overview of the general theory of evolution from the standpoint of the dynamic behavior of natural adaptive systems.
The approach leads to a radically new fusion of the diverse disciplines of evolutionary biology, serving to resolve the considerable degree of conflict existing. The Evolution of Adaptive Systems is the first to radically rework the theory of evolution.
Rather than merely amplifying the original Darwinian evolutionary model, it encompasses it within a more dynamic concept - effectively merging the Darwinian theory with that other school of evolutionary thought, cturer: Academic Press.

Complex adaptive systems are all around us from financial markets, to ecosystems, to the human immune system and even civilization itself. They consist of many agents that are acting and reacting to each other’s behavior, out of this often chaotic set of interactions emerges global patterns of organization in a dynamic world of constant change.
The Evolution of the Immune System: Conservation and Diversification is the first book of its kind that prompts a new perspective when describing and considering the evolution of the immune system.
Its unique approach summarizes, updates, and provides new insights on the different immune receptors, soluble factors, and immune cell effectors. Get this from a library. The evolution of adaptive systems. [James P Brock] -- The data of evolutionary biology have changed in a very radical way in recent years, the most significant input to this revolution being the advances made in developmental genetics.
Another recent. The main objective of this book is to illustrate how natural adaptive systems evolve as a unity--with the particular objective of identifying and merging several special theories of evolution within the framework of a single general book provides an interdisciplinary overview of the general theory of evolution from the standpoint of.
“Viruses as Complex Adaptive Systems covers the evolution, diversity, and behavior of viruses from a mathematical perspective, providing a broad range of vignettes on the subject that are clear and engagingly written. The book also serves as a useful introduction to some aspects of theoretical biology.”—Oliver Pybus, University of Oxford.
Evolution, Development and Complexity: Multiscale Evolutionary Models of Complex Adaptive Systems Georgi Yordanov Georgiev, John M. Smart, Claudio L. Flores Martinez, Michael E. Price This book explores the universe and its subsystems from the three lenses of evolutionary (contingent), developmental (predictable), and complex (adaptive.
A complex adaptive system is a system in which a perfect understanding of the individual parts does not automatically convey a perfect understanding of the whole system's behavior. In complex adaptive systems, the whole is more complex than its parts, and more complicated and meaningful than the aggregate of its parts.
The study of complex adaptive systems, a subset. The evolution of adaptive immunity is one of the greatest biological enigmas of all time. For a long time, the origin of adaptive immunity was shrouded in mystery, but the fog is surely rising and a clear picture is beginning to emerge.
As we will see in this part of the chapter, the evolution of adaptive immunity appears to have been made possible by the invasion of a putative Author: Charles A Janeway, Paul Travers, Mark Walport, Mark J Shlomchik.
This is an excellent book that introduces the reader to the concept of computational models of complex adaptive systems. The language used is both simple and engaging. The authors discuss why modeling is used, and more importantly, what are its limitations.
This book will not teach you to model complex adaptive systems.4/5(30). An adaptive system is a set of interacting or interdependent entities, real or abstract, forming an integrated whole that together are able to respond to environmental changes or changes in the interacting parts, in a way analogous to either continuous physiological homeostasis or evolutionary adaptation in biology.
Feedback loops represent a key feature of adaptive. Based on more than industrial applications, this second book on Adaptive Predictive Control presented the update of the methodology and the stability theory that underlies Adaptive Predictive control systems, and concentrated on their application and contribution to the optimization of industrial plants.
Evolution in organisms occurs through changes in heritable traits—the inherited characteristics of an organism. In humans, for example, eye colour is an inherited characteristic and an individual might inherit the "brown-eye trait" from one of their parents.
Inherited traits are controlled by genes and the complete set of genes within an organism's genome (genetic material) is called. The chapters come from a Satellite Meeting, "Evolution, Development and Complexity" (EDC) hosted at the Conference on Complex Systems, in Cancun, The contributions will be peer-reviewed and contributors from outside the conference will be invited to submit chapters to ensure full coverage of the topics.
4 - A Complex-Adaptive-Systems Approach to the Evolution of Language and the Brain By P. Thomas Schoenemann Edited by Salikoko S. Mufwene, University of Chicago, Christophe Coupé, Université Lumière Lyon II, François Pellegrino, Université Lumière Lyon II. This book explores the universe and its subsystems from the three lenses evolutionary (diversifying), developmental (converging) and complex (adaptive) processes at all scales.
It covers issues such as the interaction of evolutionary stochasticity and developmental determinism in biological systems. To reduce confusion, there was a determined effort to provide a comprehensive definition of mechanistic evolutionary systems biology.
This effort built on a series of annual discussions that started in and culminated in the above mentioned definition published in. The evolution of the immune system has followed the same process as individuals with more effective immune systems are likely to survive and pass on their immunity to their offspring.
An organisms environment is shaped by abiotic and biotic factors such as temperature, precipitation, wind, predation, competition and disease.Finally, it is important to understand that not all evolution is adaptive. While natural selection selects the fittest individuals and often results in a more fit population overall, other forces of evolution, including genetic drift and gene flow, often do the opposite: introducing deleterious alleles to the population’s gene pool.Abstract.
Adaptive systems are those biological and non-biological assemblages able to evolve by natural selection. They are formed by entities with the property to replicate with errors in such a way that these variants bias directly, or indirectly, their own frequency in later : Hernán J.
