Title Phase transitions in spatially extended dynamical systems
Abstract A dynamical system extended in N space dimensions can be viewed as an (N+1)-dimensional statistical mechanics system in space-time. Thus it was conjectured by Bunimovich and Sinai that there should be topologically transitive spatially extended dynamical systems with non-unique statistical state. With Gielis, I constructed some examples, based on Toom’s results for probabilistic cellular automata. I have extended the ideas to make a variety of examples of non-unique state and families with phase transition. I propose that the concepts are crucial for the management of complex systems such as the economy.
