Abstract:

Objective of this paper is to present the foundations for a mathematical theory of general systems, to discuss the limitations introduced by the use of the mathematical methods in the theory and finally to indicate the areas of application in engineering. Two points are emphasized: A need for the simplicity and precision in the definition of the basic concepts so that the description of the complex systems does not become unmanageable. An explicit recognition of the goal-seeking approach as constituting an important aspect of the systems theory. In order to make the second point more specific a formalization of the notion of a goal-seeking system is developed in the last section. The present article can be viewed as an updated version on an earlier paper since the basic problems considered and the viewpoints adopted here are the same as in (1).
