Recent Events

Dr. George Mobus, Associate Professor in Computer Science & Systems and Computer Engineering & Systems, has just had his textbook (along with co-author Professor Emeritus Michael Kalton of IAS) entitled Principles of Systems Science published by Springer, New York. This pioneering text provides a comprehensive introduction to systems structure, function, and modeling as applied in all fields of science and engineering. Systems understanding is increasingly recognized as a key to a more holistic education and greater problem solving skills, and is also reflected in the trend toward interdisciplinary approaches to research on complex phenomena. The book contains many graphs, illustrations, side bars, examples, and problems to enhance understanding. From basic principles of organization, complexity, abstract representations, and behavior (dynamics) to deeper aspects such as the relations between information, knowledge, computation, and system control, to higher order aspects such as auto-organization, emergence and evolution, the book provides an integrated perspective on the comprehensive nature of systems. Please join us in congratulating Dr. Mobus on this major accomplishment.
