subsystem has a lower channel capacity than the others and thus is the
bottleneck for the whole system, but except for two researches (see pages 138
and 139 and 139 and 140), the studies here reported throw no light on whether
that is so.
These adjustments enable the output rate to remain at or near channel capacity
and then to decline gradually, rather than to fall precipitously to zero immediately
whenever the information input rate exceeds the channel capacity. hypothesis ...
tion input rate increases so does the output rate, until a certain channel capacity
is reached. Then the output levels off at that rate. Finally as the information input
rate continues to rise, there is a marked decrease in output rate accompanied by

I purchased this book many years ago and found it very enlighting. The shredout concept was of particular interest to me in that it provided ways to look at various living systems from micro to macro.
