Systems Theory

Systems Theory has generated a lot of excitement in the last decade. It has also spawned more than its share of pitchmen, enough so that it is in danger of being discredited before its genuine ... most promising, and also the most difficult, aspect of systems theory for the social work practitioner is the topic of "feedback" and its implications for power and social control. Here the organismic

Ecological Systems Theory in Social Work

Ecological systems theory is explicated as a current form of successive systems models used in social work. Behavior principles assumptive in this model are identified: of exchange balance, inner ... -meeting. Ecological systems theory can provide support for the mediating function of social work in regard to the dialectical forces of social stability-control and social deviance-change, and in furthering

The Systemic Theory of Living Systems and Relevance to CAM: The Theory (Part II)

This theory stems from observing the universe's ‘omniscient’ nature, manifested in flows of energy and information of its life plethora. A notorious example is the living cell's intelligent nature ... AIDS and 1. Olalde , J. The systemic theory of living systems and relevance to CAM. Part I: the theory . eCAM 2005 ; 2 : 13 - 8 . 2.

Review and application of group theory to molecular systems biology

In this paper we provide a review of selected mathematical ideas that can help us better understand the boundary between living and non-living systems. We focus on group theory and abstract algebra ... contemporary molecular systems biology. 2. Introduction to Group Theory Group theory is a branch of abstract algebra developed to study and manipulate abstract concepts involving symmetry [12]. Before defining

Moving Target Tracking of Extended Nonholonomic Chained-Form Systems via Finite-Time Switching Control

A finite-time switching control scheme is presented for tracking a practical moving target of extended nonholonomic chained-form systems. Firstly, a dynamic output tracking error model is proposed ... proposed by applying the finite-time stability control theory and switching design methods. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed finite-time switching control approach is performed according to the

The object-oriented paradigm as an implementation of systems theory in IS

Classical General Systems Theory (GST) is rich with fundamental concepts relating to the explanation of how systems behave and operate. The new concept of object-oriented techniques and methodologies ... techniques provide a better fit to GST than older design methodologies. INTRODUCTION Classical General Systems Theory (GST) as we know it was derived from theorists work­ ing from approximately 1920 to the
