Integrative Systems Approaches to Natural and Social Dynamics: Systems Science 2000

At the start of the new millennium, mankind is challenged by a paradox: the greater the apparent knowledge becomes, the greater the uncertainty in understanding and predicting how the world works appears. This book presents the outline of a new basis of Systems Science and a methodology for its appl... Ausführliche Beschreibung
