Becoming Visual--Representation of Complex Systems

My Interest in Systems Analysis and Representation

Overview

Why Does Representation Matter?

Complex System Representation and Multidisciplinary Perspectives

Representation and Complex System Modeling

Getting from where you start, to a quantitative model

Representation is not just pictures, but a form of disciplined modeling
