Catastrophic transitions: Regime shifts in network topology resulting in novel systems
Using secondary data from other research projects or statistical offices:
- To apply network-based approaches to multiple systems to explore how shifts in network topology result in novel systems in a comparative perspective;
- To determine, via comparative analysis, if there are universal characteristics in network topology valid across multiple cases that can be used to anticipate a transition between states;
- To explore catastrophic transitions at multiple scales in different contexts; for example, in river systems, land-use change, transitions between different sleep states, brain activity, transitions in political and energy systems.
- Understanding the commonalities of changes in network topology that
- can be used to understand the drivers and dynamics of catastrophic transitions, and
- the potential for their reversal.
