Reconstructability Analysis: An Offspring of Ashby’s Constraint Analysis
Part of the International Federation for Systems Research International Series on Systems Science and Engineering book series (IFSR, volume 7)
It is a great pleasure and a privilege for me to deliver this lecture and pay thus a tribute to W. Ross Ashby, a brilliant scholar who contributed so much to systems research and cybernetics.
