Do they really exist? Or are they defined simply to give meaning to mathematical equations? Has the possibility of using different methods for timing events (other than the physical calendar) been considered? How can confusion between the timing of a computation (steps, the timing of an iterative algorithm), and timing of the process itself (Winfree, 2001) be avoided? Part II A Gentle Introduction to the Mathematics of Equilibrium and Optimization 49 Chapter 4 Introduction In this part we show how to represent an economic or ecological problem with a network structure, and how to compute and analyze the associated equilibrium.

There is friction in the articulation of the puppet. In this case it is easier to reach a state of equilibrium, although there is a temptation to resort to the friction hypothesis. (4) Over time the articulation of the puppet changes. As the puppets joints age, local movements become unpredictable. 2.

Results obtained by network economics approach raise conventional arguments of this topic; and this may be anticipated.
