By Stebbing

Maia is the tale of an concept, and its improvement right into a operating speculation, that gives a cybernetic interpretation of ways progress is managed. progress on the lowest point is managed through regulating the speed of development. entry to the output of regulate mechanisms is equipped via perturbing the turning out to be organism, after which filtering out the results to progress expense. The output of the expansion keep an eye on mechanism is then available for interpretation and modelling. Perturbation experiments were used to supply interpretations of hormesis, the neutralization of inhibitory load and bought tolerance to poisonous inhibition, and catch-up progress. The account starts with an advent to cybernetics overlaying the law of progress and inhabitants bring up in animals and guy and describes this new method of entry the keep an eye on of development procedures. This ebook is acceptable for postgraduate scholars of organic cybernetics and researchers of organic development, endocrinology, inhabitants ecology and toxicology.
