Abstract:

In a complex system, mutual information measures the information common to the variables involved. In more than two dimensions, it indicates the level of synergy between variables or the level of self‑organization or how central coordinated the system is. Mutual information has a lower and an upper bounds that vary according to the system’s configuration. In this paper, we analyse the complex system of the Triple Helix of university‑industry‑government relationships from the information theory point of view. We find out general characteristics of bi‑ and tri‑dimensional configurations where mutual information reaches its bounds; we compute efficiency, unused capacity and transmission power for such systems as well as for some particular cases.
