|Understanding how complex systems change over time: internal feedback loops within the structure of the system influence the entire system behavior. Tools and resources including connections to other system dynamics/operations research projects; and links to MVHS models, many using STELLA: Cellular Respiration and the Production of ATP; Epidemic Modeling (Ebola virus); Ecological Succession from Sand Dune to Maritime Forest in East Coast Islands; A dynamic simulation of objects in Free Fall; Model of a Harmonic Oscillator; Oxygen Levels in a River; Population Models (bear, squirrel, and crab models as well as emphasis on the mathematical foundation of STELLA).|
