Random boolean networks have been studied in order to modelize complex systems composed of many parts. S.Kauffman (1970) founds his choice of such models upon a comparison between genetic nets and networks of randomly interconnected binary elements. He gives important statistical results for nets with connectivity k=1, 2, 3, N (number of elements in the net).
