  • Ali Bülent Cambel
Conference paper
Part of the Springer Series in Synergetics book series (SSSYN, volume 22)


The introduction of microquantities into the analysis and synthesis of macro-systems is one of the most crucial issues that challenges the scholarly community regardless of discipline. The assertion applies equally well in the physical, biological, behavioral and social sciences, as well as in modern technology and policy planning.
