1. In an agent-based system, the state space may unfold with the dynamics and is then no longer a static entity. More generally, cells produce new cells, organisms produce new organisms; one of the characteristic features of biology is its capability for self-reproduction. There exists no general mathematical framework for dynamical systems in which the dynamics reconstruct the state space as they progress. Hybrid models, which combine discrete and continuous dynamics, provide only a partial kludge [40].
