Tentative general formulation of the design problem

Higher Orders of Inter-sectoral Consensus (Part #15)

[Parts: First | Prev | Next | Last | All ] [Links: To-K | From-K | From-Kx ]

Consider the case of a group of S self-selected sectors.

Each sector defines its boundary through a set of D statements (in a declaration or charter of some kind).

Of the D statements for a given sector, a sub-set of P statements will have positive (harmonious, supportive) relationships to statements of other sectors, and a sub-set N will have negative (discordant, opposing) relationships to statements of other sectors.

Since S is a self-selected set of sectors, for one reason or another a further set of R sectors may considers themselves to exist, even though they have not been included in the set of S sectors. They too will have relationships, both to the included set and to the excluded set.
