  • Description
  • Feature
  • Contents

This book examines the nature of emergence in context of man-made (i.e. engineered) systems, in general, and system of systems engineering applications, specifically. It investigates emergence to interrogate or explore the domain space from a modeling and simulation perspective to facilitate understanding, detection, classification, prediction, control, and visualization of the phenomenon. Written by leading international experts, the text is the first to address emergence from an engineering perspective.

  • The first chapter is an introduction and overview to the text.
  • The book provides 12 chapters that have a theoretical foundation for this subject.
  • Includes 7 specific example chapters of how various modeling and simulation paradigms/techniques can be used to investigate emergence in an engineering context to facilitate understanding, detection, classification, prediction, control and visualization of emergent behavior.
  • The final chapter offers lessons learned and the proposed way-ahead for this discipline.
