SOS 212: Lecture C1 (2021-02-02): Feedback Systems Thinking with CLDs

In this lecture, we introduce ways to build up more complex thinking using Causal Loop Diagrams by introducing fundamental modes of dynamic behavior. These fundamental modes can generate aspects of many common behaviors over time just through the combination of a few patterns of feedback loops and delays. This lecture helps motivate the more complex System Archetypes that will be introduced in the next lecture.

This lecture was recorded by Theodore Pavlic as part of SOS 212 (Systems, Dynamics, and Sustainability) at Arizona State University.
