Ensemble axiom

The ensemble axiom proposes that cooperation within an ensemble permits extreme simplification of the parts and enhances the operation of the ensemble.[1]

This term is used within a research area called self-reconfiguring modular robotics, and specifically within claytronics, where it is stated as: A catom includes only enough functionality to contribute to the functionality desired in the claytronic ensemble.[2]
