This textbook for a senior engineering or graduate course presents the macro-to-micro approach to systems analysis and modeling. Boyd (Montana State University) demonstrates the method through examples of deterministic models drawn from physics, numerical methods, ballistics, inventory theory, and corporate strategy, followed by examples of stochastic modeling from ergonomics, glaciology, water resources planning, forestry, manufacturing processes, time series, and operations research.Book News, Inc.Â®, Portland, OR
