R&D: Diversity modeling
Complex systems that lack diversity lose their adaptation capability
In a paper published in Chaos, Solitons & Fractals Journal, Marcel and his wife, Ligia analyze the impact of diversity in social systems. They demonstrate how complex systems that lack diversity, relying on conformity and identity, lose their adaptation capability. However, without coherent goals, diversity can lead to chaos and contagion of dishonest behavior. Uniformity, as well as inconsistent diversity are seeds of self-destruction.
