Systems Engineering (1)

During the years 2010 until now, work on the Systems Processes Theory (SPT) has proceeded with the help of several systems engineers who are working together under the auspices of a joint memo of agreement and cooperation between INCOSE (the … Continue reading

Research on Dualities (2)

Dualities exist everywhere. Our argument is that they appear so widely because they are important to systems dynamics. In the System of Systems Processes Theory we have proposed a neologism for duality. We call this isomorphic phenomenon ……. “counterparity”……. to … Continue reading

Motifs, SubCircuits, Patterns

The SoSPT when graphed appears as a very complicated network. Just as has been observed in network theory and graphed nets of many diverse systems interactions, there are patterns of connection or systems architecture that appear more often than might … Continue reading

Research on Hierarchies

Many recognize and cite the value and function of hierarchical structure and processes in both natural and human systems. First seen only in social systems (thus the misleading etymology of the word), this phenomenon was also discovered to be significant … Continue reading

Toward A “Science” of Systems

Papers, sections of papers, editorials, and statements that argue that systems thinking and especially only anthropomorphic, or human-centered study of systems is weak without studying how systems over billions of years have evolve to work effectively. These papers argue that … Continue reading

Artificial Systems Research

Artificial Systems Research refers to our efforts to place the SoSPT theory in virtual reality much like researchers on Artificial Life placed virtual biosystems in virtual reality to explore genetics and evolution. This would enable adding or subtracting different sets … Continue reading

Systems Allometry

This research expands the work on allometry first examined in biological systems, and then in engineering systems to all the scales of size of system using general system parameters rather than the parameters characteristic of manifest systems.

Systems Pathology

One spinoff from the Systems Processes Theory (SPT) is the new specialty of Systems Pathology. This new emphasis looks for generic diseases at the systems architecture level. There pre-exists areas of “systems-level” consideration of diseases in several fields, e.g. classic … Continue reading
