An Introduction to Evolving Systems of Flexible Aerospace Structures Conference Paper uri icon


  • A new framework called evolving systems has been proposed to describe the autonomous assembly of actively controlled subsystems into an evolved system with a higher purpose. Using a perturbation applied to mass-spring components which comprise an evolving system, this paper looks at both the inheritance of stability and an approach using perturbation methods to determine the inheritance of stability in evolved systems.
