Propagation of Uncertainty in Socio-Economic Systems

Abstract

Whether a person acts on his own or part of a group, all human activities are directed towards the attainment of a goal. A goal is expressed in terms of specified and envisaged properties based on the corresponding initial properties attached to an object. The achievement of such a change referred to as outcome, requires a cause which is generated by the purposive action of a group of objects referred to as a’ system’. Thus, a proposed change of properties then engenders the appropriate system, an approach different from conventional view (Korn, 1994).
