2. The Mathematics of Living Systems


2. The Mathematics of Living Systems is the second Notebook in the Information Dynamics series. This series of articles investigates the mathematical requirements of living systems. Life requires a mathematics that provides up-to-date information that is both meaningful and predictive. The articles exhibit how Information Dynamics fulfills these requirements and how standard systems, such as Probability, Physics, and Information Theory are inadequate to the task.
