Homeokinetics: The Basics

by: Arthur S. Iberall

Homeokinetics is the physics of complex systems. These are universes, galaxies, or planetary subsystems, or even social systems. A complex system is one where there is a tremendous amount of internal exchange by the actors. The physics of complex systems is played out on the basis of trying to understand what these complex internal agents are doing. This book is for scientists in fields such as biology, economics, anthropology, political science, physiology, and experimental psychology. Whether a discipline studies atoms, molecules, cells, people, stars, galaxies, or universes, the same tools can be used to understand them.

Dr. Arthur S. Iberall (1918-2002) was a theoretical physicist whose research at the NASA Exobiology Program into the dynamics of mammalian physiological processes led to the development of homeokinetics, the physics of complex systems. He was chief physicist at Rand Development Corporation and General Technical Systems and a consultant to various government agencies. His applied work contributed to the development of the first space suit, the high-speed dental drill, breathing regulators, fiberglass cutters, and major home appliances. He taught courses at UCLA Crump Institute in complex systems. Dr. Iberall published over 200 papers and authored books including Foundations for Social and Biological Evolution (1993) and Toward A General Science Of Viable Systems (1972).
