Functional graph theory: How to chart the operating mechanisms of complex systems

简介:

Natural phenomena are inherently complex, which can be viewed as dynamic systems in which constituent elements act and interact across time and space scales in a complicated but coordinated manner. Disentangling the detailed architecture of intercomponent interactions and their role in mediating system behavior can reveal the general rules behind natural phenomena and processes. In this talk, I will present an emerging theory – functional graph theory (FunGraph) derived from the combination of evolutionary game theory, predator-prey theory and developmental modularity theory into graph theory. FunGraph can chart the mechanistic roadmap of how each element influences system dynamics directly or through a web of indirect pathways. We demonstrate the use of FunGraph to reveal the internal workings of the gut microbiota associated with human health. We discuss the advantages and disadvantages of FunGraph as a statistical mechanics tool to unveil the operational mechanisms of general complex systems.
