title = "Formalizing the notion of adaptive system behavior",

abstract = "In computer science the notion of adaptive systems has been used in different contexts for many years now. Although there is some intuitive, common understanding of the notion, a precise and universally practicable definition is still missing. More precisely, previous definitions fail to strictly differentiate between adaptive and non-adaptive systems. We investigate the intuitions and propose a precise definition that comprises most informal explanations. Methodical implications arising from our definition are discussed as well.",
