Systems

Some articles on systems, system:

Chaos Theory - Applications
... has been observed in the laboratory in a variety of systems, including electrical circuits, lasers, oscillating chemical reactions, fluid dynamics, and mechanical and magneto-mechanical devices, as well as computer ... in nature include changes in weather, the dynamics of satellites in the solar system, the time evolution of the magnetic field of celestial bodies, population growth in ecology, the dynamics of the ... mechanics works in the context of chaotic systems ...
Linear Dynamical Systems
... Linear dynamical systems can be solved in terms of simple functions and the behavior of all orbits classified ... In a linear system the phase space is the N-dimensional Euclidean space, so any point in phase space can be represented by a vector with N numbers ... The analysis of linear systems is possible because they satisfy a superposition principle if u(t) and w(t) satisfy the differential equation for the vector field (but not necessarily the initial condition ...
Chaos Theory
... Chaos theory studies the behavior of dynamical systems that are highly sensitive to initial conditions, an effect which is popularly referred to as the butterfly effect ... to rounding errors in numerical computation) yield widely diverging outcomes for such dynamical systems, rendering long-term prediction impossible in general ... This happens even though these systems are deterministic, meaning that their future behavior is fully determined by their initial conditions, with no random elements involved ...
Interoperability
... Interoperability is the ability of diverse systems and organizations to work together (inter-operate) ... The term is often used in a technical systems engineering sense, or alternatively in a broad sense, taking into account social, political, and organizational ... While interoperability was initially defined for IT systems or services and only allows for information to be exchanged (see definition below), a more generic definition could be this one ...
Chaos Theory - History
... In the system studied, "Hadamard's billiards", Hadamard was able to show that all trajectories are unstable in that all particle trajectories diverge exponentially from one another, with a ... evident for some scientists that linear theory, the prevailing system theory at that time, simply could not explain the observed behaviour of certain experiments like that of ... was considered by chaos theories as a full component of the studied systems ...

Famous quotes containing the word systems:

    What avails it that you are a Christian, if you are not purer than the heathen, if you deny yourself no more, if you are not more religious? I know of many systems of religion esteemed heathenish whose precepts fill the reader with shame, and provoke him to new endeavors, though it be to the performance of rites merely.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Our little systems have their day;
    They have their day and cease to be:
    They are but broken lights of thee,
    And thou, O Lord, art more than they.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    The skylines lit up at dead of night, the air- conditioning systems cooling empty hotels in the desert and artificial light in the middle of the day all have something both demented and admirable about them. The mindless luxury of a rich civilization, and yet of a civilization perhaps as scared to see the lights go out as was the hunter in his primitive night.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)
