System Theory

Most popular at the top

  • Foundations of Complex-system Theoriesby Sunny Y. Auyang

    Cambridge University Press 1998; US$ 46.00

    Analyzes approaches to the study of complexity in the physical, biological, and social sciences. more...

  • In the Wake of Chaosby Stephen H. Kellert

    University of Chicago Press 1994; US$ 22.50

    Chaos theory has captured scientific and popular attention. What began as the discovery of randomness in simple physical systems has become a widespread fascination with "chaotic" models of everything from business cycles to brainwaves to heart attacks. But what exactly does this explosion of new research into chaotic phenomena mean for our understanding... more...

  • Motion Control Systemsby Asif Sabanovic; Kouhei Ohnishi

    Wiley 2011; US$ 149.95

    Motion Control Systems is concerned with design methods that support the never-ending requirements for faster and more accurate control of mechanical motion. The book presents material that is fundamental, yet at the same time discusses the solution of complex problems in motion control systems. Methods presented in the book are based on the authors'... more...

  • Handbook of Marine Craft Hydrodynamics and Motion Controlby Thor I. Fossen

    Wiley 2011; US$ 205.00

    The technology of hydrodynamic modeling and marine craft motion control systems has progressed greatly in recent years. This timely survey includes the latest tools for analysis and design of advanced guidance, navigation and control systems and presents new material on underwater vehicles and surface vessels. Each section presents numerous case studies... more...

  • Self-Organization in Complex Ecosystems. (MPB-42)by Ricard V. Solé; Jordi Bascompte

    Princeton University Press 2012; US$ 67.50

    Can physics be an appropriate framework for the understanding of ecological science? Most ecologists would probably agree that there is little relation between the complexity of natural ecosystems and the simplicity of any example derived from Newtonian physics. Though ecologists have long been interested in concepts originally developed by statistical... more...

  • Complexity and Sustainabilityby Jennifer Wells

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 55.95

    Complex dynamic system studies have been studied explicitly in the natural sciences, and most only implicitly throughout other fields. Yet much great social theory and philosophy is in fact based in complexity, and important concepts like postmodernism, risk, and collapse all stem from complexity. Six key terms are explored: nonlinearity, feedbacks,... more...

  • Models as Make-Believeby Adam Toon

    Palgrave Macmillan 2012; US$ 90.00

    Scientists often try to understand the world by building simplified and idealised models of it. Adam Toon develops a new approach to scientific models by comparing them to the dolls and toy trucks of children's imaginative games, and offers a unified framework to solve difficult metaphysical problems and help to make sense of scientific practice. more...

  • The Engine of Complexityby John Mayfield

    Columbia University Press 2013; US$ 33.99

    The concepts of evolution and complexity theory have become part of the intellectual ether permeating the life sciences, the social and behavioral sciences, and more recently, management science and economics. In this new title, John Mayfield elegantly synthesizes core concepts from across disciplines to offer a new approach to understanding how evolution... more...

  • Thinking Through Systems Thinkingby Ion Georgiou

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 67.95

    Systemicity is receiving wider attention thanks to its evident paradox. On the one hand, it occurs as a problem with complex symptoms. On the other, it is sought after as an approach for dealing with the non-linear reality of the world. At once problem and prize, systemicity continues to confound. This book details the mechanics of this paradox as... more...

  • Dynamic Modeling and Predictive Control in Solid Oxide Fuel Cellsby Biao Huang; Yutong Qi; A. K. M. Monjur Murshed

    Wiley 2013; US$ 149.95

    The high temperature solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) is identified as one of the leading fuel cell technology contenders to capture the energy market in years to come. However, in order to operate as an efficient energy generating system, the SOFC requires an appropriate control system which in turn requires a detailed modelling of process dynamics.... more...
