Abstract

We present an extension of a novel method for understanding complex systems, which has been applied to non-equilibrium systems both in and out of detailed balance. For the non-detailed balance case, in which non-zero currents are a principal indicator of complexity, there has been an incomplete understanding of the distance function in the observable representation embedding. To deal with this we construct a new transition matrix by accounting for this current and compute the eigenvalues and eigenvectors. From these, we define a metric whose distance provides a useful measure of the relation among variables. Use of this method provides insights into long-range correlation, and chaotic properties. As an example we show that these distances can be used to control chaos in a simple dynamical system.
