This chapter looks at the concept of limit systems and related properties. In particular, Section 7.1 studies the existence of limit systems. Section 7.2 shows how local state mappings can lead to mappings from limit systems to limit systems. Section 7.3 investigates the property of centralizability of limit systems.
