Virtual Issue on Methods for Identifying Structural Dominanc

Post by Gönenç Yucel » Wed Jul 03, 2013 12:49 am

A "virtual issue" is a new online publication option offered by the publishers of the System Dynamics Review (SDR) journal. A virtual issue consists of a collection of articles on a specific topic, which have previously been published in SDR, a topic-specific bibliography and a summary by the editors. These thematic issues will be available online. As the second of a series, the virtual issue that is edited by Jim Duggan and Rogelia Oliva is made online in February 2013, and it focuses on structural dominance analysis. The issue includes the following key articles on the topic;
  • "Loop polarity, loop dominance, and the concept of dominant polarity" by George P. Richardson
  • "Dominant structure" by George P. Richardson
  • "Reality check: A bridge between systems thinking and system dynamics" by David W. Peterson and Robert L. Eberlein
  • "A behavioral approach to feedback loop dominance analysis" by David N. Ford
  • "Statistical screening of system dynamics models" by Andrew Ford and Hilary Flynn
  • "Feedback loop gains and system behavior" by Christian Erik Kampman
  • "Loop eigenvalue elasticity analysis: three case studies" by Christian Erik Kampmann and Rogelio Oliva
  • "Towards coherent loop dominance analysis: progress in eigenvalue elasticity analysis" by Burak Güneralp
  • "Behavior modes, pathways and overall trajectories: eigenvector and eigenvalue analysis of dynamic systems" by Paulo Gonçalves
  • "Using Digest to implement the pathway participation method for detecting influential system structure" by Mohammad Mojtahedzadeh, David Andersen and George P. Richardson
  • "Do parallel lines meet? How can pathway participation metrics and eigenvalue analysis produce similar results?" by Mohammad Mojtahedzadeh
  • "Consistency in explaining model behavior based on its feedback structure" by Mohammad Mojtahedzadeh
Besides these articles, the virtual issue also includes a bibliography of System Dynamics model analysis compiled by the virtual issue editors.

You may access the virtual issue through the website of SDR: ... sPage.html

Hope to meet you all in Boston,
