These collective mechanisms can be formulated in the context of a spinglass model (cf [12, 21, 25]), that incorporates the Onsager relations of statistical physics applied to networks of mutating sequences and error-correction in the presence of rate distortion dynamics, then leading to phase transitions through which symmetry breaking occurs and hence causes a change in topological structure of the graph.
Onsager (53) generalized the Lorentz theory by distinguishing between the internal field that acts on induced dipoles and the directing field that acts on permanent dipoles.

En su trabajo inicial Onsager (1949), demostro que a densidades suficientemente altas, un fluido que contiene moleculas con una geometria de varillas duras puede presentar en forma espontonea, una transicion de fase Isotropico-Nemotico (I-N), es decir, una fase ordenada orientacionalmente, por lo cual, puede ser considerado como la piedra angular para teorias moleculares, cuyo objetivo sea describir dicha transicion, dicha teoria presenta limitaciones al tratar de predecir cuantitativamente dicha transicion para varillas duras de elongaciones intermedias, pero para varillas infinitamente grandes los resultados son exactos.
