Book Description

A Novel Method to Analyze Problems and Encourage Systemic Thinking
Real-Life Case Studies Illustrate the Application of the Systemic Yoyo Model in Diverse Areas

Written by the co-creator of the systemic yoyo model, Systemic Yoyos: Some Impacts of the Second Dimension shows how the yoyo model and its methodology can be employed to study many unsettled or extremely difficult problems in modern science and technology.

The first part of the book presents the theoretical foundation of the yoyo model and its empirical justifications. The author then shows how to use the model to address and resolve several problems in scientific areas, such as Newtonian physics, planetary motions, and the three-body problem, as well as economics and finance, such as Becker’s rotten kid theorem. The following part discusses the structure of human thoughts, infinity problems in the system of modern mathematics, and the fourth crisis of mathematics. The book concludes with a section on the concept of rolling currents, which can help predict weather changes, especially the arrival of disastrous weather conditions.

Focusing on complex, unresolved issues in modern science, this book thoroughly explains the novel yoyo model and how it can be used to better understand wage differentials, weather patterns, and more.

…each of the 18 chapters of this monograph establishes some brand new and important results along with its author's attempt to address important problems … This book is a must read for young scholars who are looking for new directions for their future careers. And, it can and should also be a magnificent read for seasoned scholars who want to rekindle their curiosity and peek into disciplines outside their domains which they did not have time or energy to care about for years. Other than what are obtained already, this monograph surely contains leads for future research in many scientific areas while providing a practically usable road map, thinking logic, and methodology that are different of those of modem science.
