About non-monotony in Boolean automata networks

Abstract : This paper aims at presenting motivations and rst results of a prospective theoretical study on the role of non-monotone interactions in the modelling process of biological regulation networks. Focusing on discrete models of these networks, namely, Boolean automata networks, we propose to analyse the contribution of non-monotony to the diversity and complexity in their dynamical behaviours. More precisely, in this paper, we start by detail- ing some motivations, both mathematical and biological, for our interest in non-monotony, and we discuss how it may account for phenomena that cannot be produced by monotony only. Then, to build some understanding in this direction, we show some preliminary results on the dynamical be- haviours of some speci c non-monotone Boolean automata networks called xor circulant networks.
