Abstract

A variety of open systems in nature and society exist under dynamic equilibrium, maintained by statistical counterbalance between the entering and leaving of individuals and the stationarity of the exchange processes. A network of functions characterizing the dynamics of such a stationary population is established and discussed, which allows the mutual transference of system properties without the need of any explicit information about the microdynamic processes. In order to illustrate the potential benefit of these interdependence relations, examples taken from diverse branches of research (adsorption and reaction kinetics, demographic analysis, and coronary blood flow diagnosis) are given.
