I'm currently interested in this subject but all I can see is about neural networks and I'm more interested on the Theoretical point of view: "how can a system (Lagrangian/Hamiltonian) alter it's geometry by external perturbations?" (If I got that right... of course)

Some directions here?

Maybe it's just that I'm unfamiliar with the field, but it's not clear to me what you're actually asking here. Can you try to make this more specific? –  David Z Oct 25 '11 at 22:57
    
Let see... You have a lattice that can change its geometry depending on the perturbations you throw "in". Hope it helps –  phoenix Oct 25 '11 at 23:17

Not really, unfortunately. I guess the root of the problem is that you end your question with "Some directions here?" which is a really vague way to ask a question. That's what I'm asking if you can clarify. –  David Z Oct 26 '11 at 1:21
    
Lagrangian/Hamiltonian dynamics is a bad fit for these types of questions. You are probably best off making a direct discrete computational model, and ignoring the real numbers, which add unnecessary complications. –  Ron Maimon Oct 26 '11 at 2:50
    
I'm sorry @DavidZaslavsky but if I ask for directions (something to read) is just because I don't see where I can get this information. –  phoenix Oct 26 '11 at 8:44
