The game of futsal as an adaptive process.
Some researchers have described team sports as complex, open, and hierarchical systems. This study aimed to investigate and describe how the game of futsal could be characterized as a dynamic adaptive process. One game, which included participation by two amateur teams, was analyzed...
Homeobios: the pattern of heartbeats in newborns, adults, and elderly patients.
HRV has been found useful in the study of cardiological illness in adults and elders, as well as in monitoring prenatal health. Twenty-four hour Holter recordings of R to R intervals (RRI) in healthy newborns, adults, and elderly persons were analyzed with statistical, chaos, and recurrence methods....
Science and art: emergence of patterns from nature's chaos, through parallels between Edward Lorenz and Yves Klein.
I will explore the relationship between science and art as Edward Lorenz's discoveries unfolded to shed new light on the sensitive patterns hidden within nature's processes....
Explaining health care utilization for panic attacks using cusp catastrophe modeling.
Despite increased health care utilization, patients with panic disorder continue to report unmet needs. The objective was to compare the fit of linear and Cusp Catastrophe Modeling in explaining changes in utilization of emergency, general and mental health settings, and self-treatments for panic sy...
A catastrophe model for the prospect-utility theory question.
We use a cusp model to create a value surface whose control dimensions are involvement and gains versus losses. By including 'involvement' as a variable the importance of the individual's psychological state is included, and it provides a rationale for how decision makers' changes from expected util...
Nonlinear EEG Changes in a 48-Hour Cyclic Manic-Depressive Patient
Generating Replications of Chaotic Time Series
Modeling Maher's Attribution Theory of Delusions as a Cusp Catastrophe
Phase transitions between lower and higher level management learning in times of crisis: an experimental study based on synergetics.
We introduce theory and methods of synergetics and present results from an experimental study based on the simulation of a crisis within a business simulation game. Hypothesized critical fluctuations - as a marker for so-called phase transitions - have been assessed with permutation entropy. Results...
Leadership emergence in engineering design teams.
Leaders emerge from leaderless groups as part of a more complex emerging social structure. Several studies have shown that the emerging structure is aptly described by a swallowtail catastrophe model where the control parameters differ depending on whether creative problem solving, production, coord...
