Detection and monitoring of intermediate-scale emergence in dynamical networks

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Dynamical networks are at the heart of the theoretical activities of the project "Emergence by Design" (MD). Particular attention has been and will be devoted to the spontaneous emergence of structures and patterns - which will be collectively called here "dynamical structures" - that typically present a "sandwiched" character, i.e. they happen between two pre-existing levels. Sandwiched emergence poses formidable theoretical challenges, a most remarkable one being that of identifying the emergent "dynamical structures" themselves - a task that can be far from trivial unless a regular topology is imposed. But the main interest of MD is in networks that do not have such a regular topology. In order to identify the emergent dynamical structures a number of information-theoretical measures will be considered, including those proposed by Edelman and Tononi.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
