The pursuit of understanding: Modelling dynamic behaviour in disease, life and love
Dangerfield, BC 2003, The pursuit of understanding: Modelling dynamic behaviour in disease, life and love , in: Inaugural Lecture: Professor Brian Dangerfield, 12 November 2003, University of Salford.
The past 15 years have seen developments in management science which, when modelling complex systems, switch the focus away from the pursuit of prediction and towards increased understanding of the qualitative behaviour patterns which can arise. Obtaining insights into the causes of dynamic behaviour in socio-economic systems allows better management of such systems. The methodology of system dynamics has been at the forefront of this change and its visibility within the corpus of management science has heightened. Examples of models will be offered which illustrate dynamic behaviour in epidemiology, business and social systems and in personal relationships.
