Complexity and Self-Organization in Social and Economic Systems: Proceedings of the International Conference on Complexity and Self-Organization in Social and Economic Systems Beijing, October 1994

Overview

This volume deals with nonlinear dynamic modelling in the social sciences. In addition to theoretical and methodological contributions, some papers offer precious insights for the understanding of non-equilibrium dynamics underlying managerial and technological innovation problems, regional and international dynamics and macroeconomic policies, especially in the present social transition in China. The reader will find qualitative descriptions, data analyses, deterministic and stochastic dynamic models as well as ...

Overview

This volume deals with nonlinear dynamic modelling in the social sciences. In addition to theoretical and methodological contributions, some papers offer precious insights for the understanding of non-equilibrium dynamics underlying managerial and technological innovation problems, regional and international dynamics and macroeconomic policies, especially in the present social transition in China. The reader will find qualitative descriptions, data analyses, deterministic and stochastic dynamic models as well as artificial intelligence models. Applied nonlinear dynamic modelling in the social sciences is still in its infancy, therefore, such a combination of approaches will undoubtedly provide the reader with very stimulating suggestions for further work in
