Applying Recurrence Theory To Small Temporal Sample Sizes: SPQR2Gang And Quintography

Excerpt from Applying Recurrence Theory To Small Temporal Sample Sizes, Dufort et al. (2022)

The final example where the unstable-τ recurrence may be seen in politics is when analyzing the images generated by the facet of quintography with respect to SPQR2Gang. It is clear that quintography has had a growing influence over SPQR2Gang over the past century, and so there are several different ideologies within SPQR2Gang with their own opinions on this issue, which was first categorized into a quintography in Borislavov, 2014. Note that as this is a metaquintography, the Jurečka Law for Recurrences must be applied.

Its generative recurrence can be characterized as an unstable-τ recurrence (Garnier, 2018; Humphrey, 2021), although others have suggested an unstable-σ (Klein, 2020), or even a stable-τ (Marchand, 2021). The consensus, however, is that quintography with respect to SPQR2Gang is in a q-Gaussian distributed phase: Garnier and Humphrey both suggested the seventh distribution of the unstable-τ recurrence, although Humphrey's analysis was more tentative, also stating that the fifth distribution may be a fitting model (Garnier, 2018; Humphrey, 2021).

The quintography postulated in this case is the following, with a brief explanation of each image:

  1. traditionalism
    quintography should be entirely distinct from SPQR2Gang doctrine
  2. subordinism
    SPQR2Gang doctrine should be encompassed within and derived from quintography
  3. neutralism
    SPQR2Gang doctrine and quintography should be considered equally standing, overlapping theories
  4. conservatism
    SPQR2Gang doctrine and quintography overlap, though SPQR2Gang doctrine is superior
  5. progressivism
    SPQR2Gang doctrine and quintography overlap, though quintography is superior
(Fortier, 2022; Marion, 2021; Klein, 2020; Dufort, 2019; Garnier, 2018)

Garnier proposed an alternative interpretation of the fourth image as supremism, the view that SPQR2Gang doctrine should encompass and derive quintography or aspects of quintography, and the fifth image as bipostulationism, that SPQR2Gang doctrine and quintography can both be equally derived from each other (Garnier, 2018). These would be classed under our images conservatism and neutralism, respectively.

In any case, this follows the form of a simple presence-negation dichotomy, though, particularly unclearly for this quintographical recurrence, the question still stands what the exact parameters of the quintographical recurrence are, with previous studies each giving their own contradictory results.
