Abstract:

A systematic review of the literature was conducted through the facilities of the DSMC library to find literature dealing with the subject. Cybernetics is defined and the development of the subject from conception to fledging science is advanced. The higher system to which it belongs is proposed along with several methods for studying those systems. The language of cybernetics is discussed and selected terms are defined. A simple working model is presented. Various partitions of the pure and applied cybernetics are shown. Finally, three topics for future study are proposed because of the apparent value cybernetics has in studying the relationships between systems. Author
