    Closure: Emergent Organizations and Their Dynamics.Jerry L. R. Chandler & Gertrudis van de Vijver (eds.) - 2000 - New York Academy of Sciences.
    Classical neo-Darwinian explanations do not fully account for changes in biological forms, and new theories have emerged, primarily in maths and physics, that offer new approaches to the problem of the origin of life and phenomena of order in evolution. This volume focuses on the role of closure at various hierarchical levels as the catalyst between self-organization and selection. Participants addressed special areas of the closure problem such as autopoiesis and autocatalysis and function and selection, and semiosis. Presentations on physical (...)

    Algebraic Biology: Creating Invariant Binding Relations for Biochemical and Biological Categories. [REVIEW]Jerry L. R. Chandler - 2009 - Axiomathes 19 (3):297-320.
    The desire to understand the mathematics of living systems is increasing. The widely held presupposition that the mathematics developed for modeling of physical systems as continuous functions can be extended to the discrete chemical reactions of genetic systems is viewed with skepticism. The skepticism is grounded in the issue of scientific invariance and the role of the International System of Units in representing the realities of the apodictic sciences. Various formal logics contribute to the theories of biochemistry and molecular biology (...)
