Diagram: Phase Space

Phase Space

Phase space is an abstract concept that refers to all possible behaviors available to an agent within a complex system.

Phase space is a concept that attempts to capture the range of all possible options for degrees of freedom or parameters of behavior. The number of parameters available becomes the 'dimension' of phase space, or the 'degrees of freedom'.  (for more on degrees of freedom, look here!)The ways in which an agent behaves in phase space is initially random, but over time past behaviors begin to shape phase space (Feedback) so that certain behaviors become more likely – this ‘weighted’ phase space is now better understood as a fitness landscape random, but over time past behaviors begin to shape phase space (feedback loops) so that certain behaviors become more likely – this ‘weighted’ phase space is now better understood as a Fitness Landscape.
