Alonso, E., Karcanias, N. and Hessami, A. G. (2013). Symmetries, Groups, Groupoids and Systems of Systems. SYSCON 2013: 7th Annual IEEE International Systems Conference, pp. 244-250. doi: 10.1109/SysCon.2013.6549889


In this paper we propose an algebraic model of systems based on the concept of symmetry that can be instrumental in representing Systems of Systems two main characteristics, namely complexity and (hierarchical) emergence.
