Abstract

The concept of a constant reformulation of the canon due to the notion of singularity or irreducibility of the case can be applied in both scientific and literary fields. In this volume, dynamics of interconnections between the case and the canon are analysed by scholars belonging to different disciplines such as physics, medicine, biology, psychoanalysis, and literature. Particular attention has been given to the science of detection since the techniques of investigation are based on the scientific acquisition of evidence and often imply a scientific (abductive) process. Our contribution reviews how physics (stochastic modeling and network theory) contributes to a better understanding of nature and biology, that contain precise rules (the canon) that can be masked by noise and variability (the case)
