Part of the Applied Optimization book series (APOP, volume 34)


The first model of world dynamics was developed by G.Forrester and D.L.Meadows under the Roman Club initiative in 1972 (the Roman Club was a semi-formal international organization of scientists concerned about future development of human society). The model was based on the method of system dynamics developed earlier for analysis and design of industrial systems. This model is analyzed in Section 11.1 and some further its improvements — in Section 11.2.
