System Dynamics Modeling with R

System Dynamics Modeling with R By Jim Duggan
English | EPUB | 2016 | 188 Pages | ISBN : 3319340417 | 3.49 MB
This new interdisciplinary work presents system dynamics as a powerful approach to enable analysts build simulation models of social systems, with a view toward enhancing decision making. Grounded in the feedback perspective of complex systems, the book provides a practical introduction to system dynamics, and covers key concepts such as stocks, flows, and feedback. Societal challenges such as predicting the impact of an emerging infectious disease, estimating population growth, and assessing the capacity of health services to cope with demographic change can all benefit from the application of computer simulation.
