A Cybernetic View of Biological Growth by Stebbing

By Stebbing

Maia is the tale of an idea, and its improvement right into a operating speculation, that offers a cybernetic interpretation of the way development is managed. progress on the lowest point is managed via regulating the speed of progress. entry to the output of regulate mechanisms is supplied by way of perturbing the becoming organism, after which filtering out the results to development cost. The output of the expansion keep watch over mechanism is then obtainable for interpretation and modelling. Perturbation experiments were used to supply interpretations of hormesis, the neutralization of inhibitory load and purchased tolerance to poisonous inhibition, and catch-up development. The account starts with an advent to cybernetics protecting the legislation of progress and inhabitants elevate in animals and guy and describes this new method of entry the regulate of progress procedures. This ebook is acceptable for postgraduate scholars of organic cybernetics and researchers of organic development, endocrinology, inhabitants ecology and toxicology.
