An adaptive system is currently on spot: collective adaptive system (CAS), which is inspired by the socio-technical systems. In CASs, highest degree of adaptation is self-adaptation consisting of self-adaptive traits. The overarching goal of CAS is to realize systems that are tightly entangled with humans and social structures. Meeting this grand challenge of CASs requires a fundamental approach to the notion of self-adaptive trait. To this end, taking advantage of the coinductive approach we construct self-adaptation monoid to shape series of self-adaptive traits in CASs and some significant relations.
