Introduction to the Modeling and Analysis of Complex Systems
by Hiroki Sayama - Open SUNY Textbooks , 2015
This textbook offers an introduction to the modeling and analysis of complex systems. Topics covered: fundamentals of modeling, basics of dynamical systems, discrete-time models, continuous-time models, bifurcations, chaos, cellular automata, etc.
Methods and Techniques of Complex Systems Science: An Overview
by Cosma Rohilla Shalizi - arXiv , 2006
The main methods and techniques of complex systems science. It distinguishes among the broad patterns which recur across complex systems, the topics complex systems science studies, the tools employed, and the foundational science of complex systems.
Systems Analysis in Public Policy: A Critique
by Ida Russakoff Hoos - University of California Press , 1974
This is an inquiry into systems analysis, its origin and applications, its uses and abuses, its present impact and future implications. Systems analysis requires serious contemplation because of its central role in public planning.
Neocybernetics in Biological Systems
by Heikki Hyotyniemi - Helsinki University of Technology , 2006
This report summarizes ten levels of abstraction - from the most elementary to the most general levels when modeling biological systems. The neocybernetic principles can be seen as the key to reaching a holistic view of complex processes in general.
Discovering Artificial Economics
by David Batten - Westview Press , 2000
This is an informal and revealing introduction to the ideas of modern systems theory and self-organization as they apply to problems in the economic realm. David Batten interleaves anecdotes and stories with technical discussions.
- Wikibooks , 2010
Systems theory is an interdisciplinary field which studies systems as a whole. Systems theory focuses on complexity and interdependence. A system is composed of regularly interacting or interdependent groups of activities / parts that form a whole.
Linear Systems Theory and Introductory Algebraic Geometry
by Robert Hermann - Math Sci Press , 1974
Systems theory offers a unified mathematical framework to solve problems in a wide variety of fields. This mathematics is not of the traditional sort involved in engineering education, but involves virtually every field of modern mathematics.
