Book Description

This monograph presents, for the first time, a complete operational description of Theoretical and Applied Relonics. Relonics is defined as an exact science of universal self-scaled-systems-specific relationships. It is based on systems of axioms of natural measurements and axioms of control-regulation-coordination. Relonics has a fully developed operational technological platform and generic tools for scientific, research and practical applications of novel properties of living systems and other super-complex systems, such as a) relonic non-Euclidities, b) relonic asymmetries, and c) relonic infinities. The work also provides an operational description of: a) basic (Relons) and higher level irreducible units of systems-specific relationships  and b) systems-specific relationships of relationships (meta-Relons) as the quantitative units of systemity and complexity. Finally, it introduces 26 novel primary systems-level measures for effective quantitative assessment of systemity, complexity, systems-level properties and systems-level processes.

The work will be of interest to scientists, researchers, and practitioners in the fields of cybernetics, systems sciences, science of complexity, networks science, information science and engineering. Professionals in the field of medicine, psychology, social sciences, economics and military combat management will also find the book beneficial.
