**Semiotics of the structure**, or

**structure semiotics**, is a domain of research on the frontiers of graph theory and semiotics. It constitutes a practical way to semiotic modeling the structures and their properties

^{.}

Under the structure be understand the general as well as the cognitive (epistemological) meaning of a structure as a relationship or organizational form of its elements.

^{}Semiotics of the structure can be one of the many kinds of object-oriented semiotics

^{}.

**Objectives:**

- Exploring the general meaning of structure and compilation its
*formalized interpretation* - Constructing a
*semiotic model*of the structure - Exploring the
*structural properties*.

In each system have an important role their

*empirical properties*of elements and relationships. Each system has a

*function*and

*structure*. Structure constitutes an

*abstraction of the system*, its "skeleton", where its elements and relationships are loose empirical meanings and their diversity is expressed in the form of different

*positions*in the structure. Structure is presentable in the form of a graph (mathematics) and is intimately related with invariance and isomorphism.

The outcome, in a non mathematical sense is a map in skeleton form emulating elements and their relationships in a systematic way. Intricate shapes are formed, that i find inspiring.

Hi,

ReplyDeletecan you tell me the source of the illustrations? I am seeking graph theoretic methods to compactly describe the 240 solutions to the SOMA cube puzzle.
