Abstract

A general purpose nonlinear formalism is introduced that leads naturally to a system of nonlinear differential equations, called a synergistic system because it captures the saturable and synergistic properties intrinsic to biological and other organizationally complex systems. Its derivation, properties, and justification are briefly described. The concept of a controlled mathematical comparison also is introduced. This is a systematic method for comparing alternative system designs with a view toward revealing their irreducible or intrinsic differences.
