Variational Principles in Pattern Theory
The understanding of pattern formation and its dual, pattern recognition, is one of the most exciting areas of present research. It is the question of how complex systems can generate coherent global structures and how systems are designed which, by means of sensory and perceptional mechanisms, can construct internal representations of patterns in the outside world. The field represents a remarkable confluence of several different strands of thought.
