The Epsilon patterns represent the bounds of the system, defining emergent system structures and roles necessary for the system to be defined beyond the random with a focus on systemity, function, and the structure of the system.

The Epsilon patterns describe what conditions must be met for a team system to be distinguished from the randomness of a pre-system state. The two patterns concerning emergent team systems define systemity, function, and structure. As team systems move from the Alpha to the Omega system roles will mature beyond their initial requirements.
