The equations of love by Marten Scheffer posted on A View from the Bridge – the blog for Books and Arts, culture hub of the top international science journal Nature.

“Simple equations illustrated with elegant diagrams show how, depending on personalities, those forces can result in a transient affair, long-lasting stable equilibrium, or everlasting cycles of attraction and repulsion.”
