Abstract

Transaction Byte Analysis (TBA) creates a methodology to analyze, evaluate and compare any human and/or non-human social systems. Any co-ordination between social creatures requires the creation, transmission, reception and internal processing of signals that can be measured in bytes. The neurological and/or physiological limits of creatures to process bytes can now be measured. TBA allows empirical evaluation to be made of the ability of creatures to cope with dynamic unpredictable complexity and/or coordinate their actions with others to sustain their existence to reproduce their specie. TBA fills a methodological gap for comparing control and communications in any individual and/or organizations.
