Life Trajectories and Pattern Formation Sequences

  • Till Frank
Part of the Springer Series in Synergetics book series (SSSYN)


The formation of sequences of patterns has been discussed in Chaps.  6 and  7 for type 1 and type 2 pattern formation sequences, respectively. Let us apply pattern formation sequences to describe how human individuals and groups of individuals evolve over extended periods such as a day, a week, a year, a life or several generations.
