Abstract:

uSystems which are built up from functionally identical elements having two inputs and two internal states are subjected to random initial positions and random structural connections such that a random determination of cycle length is achieved. This artifice enables tractable examination of the systems over varying system size. In particular a model is presented for the distribution of the cycle length variable and also the effect of system size on cycle length is considered.
