Metcalf / Kijima / Deguchi Handbook of Systems Sciences

The primary purpose of this handbook is to clearly describe the current state of theories of systems sciences and to support their use and practice. There are many ways in which systems sciences can be described. This handbook takes a multifaceted view of systems sciences and describes them in terms of a relatively large number of dimensions, from natural and engineering science to social science and systems management perspectives.
It is not the authors’ intent, however, to produce a catalog of systems science concepts, methodologies, tools, or products. Instead, the focus is on the structural network of a variety of topics. Special emphasis is given to a cyclic–interrelated view; for example, when a theory of systems sciences is described, there is also discussion of how and why the theory is relevant to modeling or practice in reality. Such an interrelationship between theory and practice is also illustrated when an applied research field in systems sciences is explained.

The chapters in the handbook present definitive discussions of systems sciences from a wide array of perspectives. The needs of practitioners in industry and government as well as students aspiring to careers in systems sciences provide the motivation for the majority of the chapters. The handbook begins with a comprehensive introduction to the coverage that follows. It provides not only an introduction to systems sciences but also a brief overview and integration of the succeeding chapters in terms of a knowledge map. The introduction is intended to be used as a field guide that indicates why, when, and how to use the materials or topics contained in the handbook.

Since 2013, he has worked as editorxv in-chief of the Translational Systems Sciences book series published by Springer. He began his academic career with researches on the mathematical general systems theory. His current interests are in a wide spectrum of systems science from decision systems science to service systems science to soft systems approach
Hiroshi Deguchi was born in 1955 in Tokyo, Japan. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. in systems sciences from the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan, in 1983 and 1986, respectively, and a Ph.D. in economics from Kyoto University. His academic positions include: assistant professor, Fukushima University, 1987-1989; associate professor, International University of Japan, 1989-1995; associate professor, Chuo University, 1995-1996; associate professor, Kyoto University, 1996-2001; and professor, Tokyo Institute of Technology, 2001-present.
