In dynamic systems, control, and optimization theoretical and numerical advances related to the Pontryagin maximum principle were made, long-term economic growth models analyzed, and on optimal heterogeneous resource consumption studied.
In multiple objectives, trade-offs, and games, ASA completed development of a user-friendly prototype software tool for Multiple-Criteria Model Analysis (MCMA), revealed the co-benefits of key energy sustainability objectives, and designed decision-support system (DSS) with multiple objectives.
In research into systemic risk and networks, ASA looked at systems marked by interlinkages and interdependencies, where failure of one entity or a cluster of entities can cause a cascading failure capable of bringing down an entire system.
In uncertainty, resilience, risk and robust solutions, researchers focused on the resilience of ecosystems and ecosystem services, and studied the resilience of socioeconomic networks.
In the methodological area of integrated modeling and qualitative analysis, ASA analyzed different methodological approaches to model integration.
Advances were made in stochastic downscaling, with identification of structural changes in time series of socio-ecological transitions, and analyzing “big data" sets in the methodological area of artificial intelligence and data analysis.
In work related to simulations and agent-based modeling, techniques were reviewed for characterizing the performance of environmental models.
The Advanced Systems Analysis (ASA) Program's study of dynamical systems, control, and optimization, is based on understanding the heterogeneous interactions of the parts of large socioeconomic systems that function across many sectors and are driven by multiple agents. More
In multiple objectives, trade-offs, and games, development of a user-friendly prototype software tool for Multiple-Criteria Model Analysis (MCMA) was completed, the co-benefits of key energy sustainability objectives were revealed, and decision-support system (DSS) with multiple objectives of energy users, producers, and legislative authorities were designed.
