Control Sciences


This paper considers the methods of influence analysis, structure analysis, inverse problem solving and scenario analysis implemented in cognitive map-based modeling software systems. The methods serve for designing control strategies in ill-structured situations.


Inverse Problem Remote Control Control Factor Simplicial Complex Scenario Analysis 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
