Systems and Modeling

  • Dov Dori
Chapter

Abstract

Each one of us is a system. We live within systems and are surrounded by them. Systems exist in nature as well as in virtually any conceivable area of human activity. Systems are the focus of research and development in any field of human endeavor. In Chapter 4 we have elaborated on objects and processes as the fundamental building blocks of the universe. In the chapters that followed, we have learned how these building blocks can be combined in a variety of ways to model ever more complex things, which are still objects and processes. Having studied structure and dynamics, we are now ready to discuss systems.
