You are currently browsing the tag archive for the ‘nonlinearity’ tag.

from an Ecology Letters paper.

Regime shift is a scientific jargon to describe phenomena where direction of the change abruptly change (surprise!), shifting from one state to another, after passing tipping point. For example, an elastic rubber ring can be stretched longer and longer, but once the stretching passing its limit, it will snap suddenly. The rubber ring change from one state (a complete ring) to another state (broken ring), and cannot recover anymore.

Now the question is, is this finding applicable to other complex dynamic structures, like economy, climate, sustainability?
