With NATO's bombing campaign against Serbia now over, what strategic, long-range plans will the alliance employ to restore stability to the region? As the global economy continually changes in response to worldwide events, what investment strategies will firms implement to cope with changing markets? And how can major pharmaceutical companies solve the problem of having newly-developed products abandoned before they can even be launched on the market? This book is designed and written to give the applied statistician an insight into all these areas of investigation.

System Dynamics is a component of Encyclopedia of Technology, Information, and Systems Management Resources in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias. The world is facing a wide range of increasingly complex, dynamic problems in the public and private arenas alike. System dynamics discipline is an attempt to address such dynamic, long-term policy problems. Applications cover a very wide spectrum, including national economic problems, supply chains, project management, educational problems, energy systems, sustainable development, politics, psychology, medical sciences, health care, and many other areas. This theme provides a comprehensive overview of system dynamics methodology, including its conceptual / philosophical framework, as well as the technical aspects of modeling and analysis. System dynamics can address the fundamental structural causes of the long-term dynamic contemporary socio-economic problems. Its "systems" perspective challenges the barriers that separate disciplines. The interdisciplinary and systemic approach of system dynamics could be critical in dealing with the increasingly complex problems of our modern world in this new century. These two volumes are aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College students Educators, Professional practitioners, Research personnel and Policy analysts, managers, and decision makers and NGOs.

Addressing topics from system elements and simple first- and second-order systems to complex lumped- and distributed-parameter models of practical machines and processes, this work details the utility of systems dynamics for the analysis and design of mechanical, fluid, thermal and mixed engineering systems. It emphasizes digital simulation and integrates frequency-response methods throughout.;College or university bookshops may order five or more copies at a special student price, available on request.

The Solar System is a complex and fascinating dynamical system. This is the first textbook to describe comprehensively the dynamical features of the Solar System and to provide students with all the mathematical tools and physical models they need to understand how it works. It is a benchmark publication in the field of planetary dynamics and destined to become a classic. Clearly written and well illustrated, Solar System Dynamics shows how a basic knowledge of the two- and three-body problems and perturbation theory can be combined to understand features as diverse as the tidal heating of Jupiter's moon Io, the origin of the Kirkwood gaps in the asteroid belt, and the radial structure of Saturn's rings. Problems at the end of each chapter and a free Internet Mathematica® software package are provided. Solar System Dynamics provides an authoritative textbook for courses on planetary dynamics and celestial mechanics. It also equips students with the mathematical tools to tackle broader courses on dynamics, dynamical systems, applications of chaos theory and non-linear dynamics.

If you are a student of Engineering (any branch), B.Sc./M.Sc., or Business Management, then this book is for you. It will expose you to a subject evolved at Massacheusettes Institute of Technology, Boston, initiated by the inventor of random access magnetic core memory Germeshausen Professor Jay W. Forrester and demonstrates how to apply the subject into different problem situations. Each case study is a project work undertaken at the graduate or postgraduate level and beyond. Variety of problems from Insurance Sector to Engineering Competence Pool Development to Product Innovation have been tackled to demonstrate the power of System Dynamics. Further, if the subject fascinates you, you may turn out to be a professional modeller, or even carry out research work at the doctoral level. The emphasis of the book is not to teach you the software of System Dynamics simulation such as Vensim®, iThinkTM, STELLATM, MATLAB® Simulink etc., but pass you through the stages of System Dynamics model building and simulation. Once the reader gets tuned to this philosophy of System Dynamics, sky is not the limit, as you can simulate the whole cosmos, provided, you know what are the control parameters!

Modeling techniques that allow managers and researchers to see in advance the consequences of actions and policies are becoming increasingly important to environmental management. Modeling the Environment is a basic introduction to one of the most widely known and used modeling techniques, system dynamics. Modeling the Environment requires little or no mathematical background and is appropriate for undergraduate environmental students as well as professionals new to modeling.
