System Theory

  • Complexity and Sustainabilityby Jennifer Wells

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 59.95

    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$ 95.00

    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$ 39.99

    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$ 159.95 US$ 138.62

    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...

  • Autonomous Learning Systemsby Plamen Angelov

    Wiley 2012; US$ 159.95 US$ 138.62

    Autonomous Learning Systems is the result of over a decade of focused research and studies in this emerging area which spans a number of well-known and well-established disciplines that include machine learning, system identification, data mining, fuzzy logic, neural networks, neuro-fuzzy systems, control theory and pattern recognition. The evolution... more...

  • Frequency Domain Criteria for Absolute stabilityby Kumpati S. Narendra

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95

    Frequency Domain Criteria for Absolute Stability presents some generalizations of the well-known Popov solution to the absolute stability problem proposed by Lur'e and Postnikov in 1944. This book is divided into nine chapters that focus on the application of Lyapunov's direct method to generate frequency domain criteria for stability. The first eight... more...

  • Diagnosis of Active Systemsby G. Lamperti; Marina Zanella

    Springer Netherlands 2013; US$ 70.83

    This book is about model-based diagnosis of a class of discrete-event systems called active systems. Roughly, model-based diagnosis is the task of finding out the faulty components of a physical system based on the observed behavior and the system model. An active system is the abstraction of a physical artefact that is modeled as a network of com­... more...

  • Ökologische Kommunikationby Niklas Luhmann

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2013; US$ 35.54

    Dieses Buch bietet eine kompakte (und wahrscheinlich die verständlichste) Zusammenfassung der Systemtheorie. Dabei wird die Frage nach den ökologischen Risiken der modernen Gesellschaft aus Sicht Luhmanns beantwortet. more...

  • Angewandte Systemforschungby Tom Sommerlatte

    Gabler Verlag 2013; US$ 38.20

    Renommierte Wissenschaftler verschiedener Disziplinen (Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaften, Natur- und Ingenieurswissenschaften, Informatik und Telekommunikation) erläutern, wie Gestaltungsprobleme realer Systeme bewältigt werden können. more...
