Advanced Systems Analysis

The Advanced Systems Analysis (ASA) Program’s aim is to tie together systems methods and applied research on global change in order to provide a sound basis for cutting-edge systems analysis.

ASA researchers use exploratory applied mathematics to:

  1. Identify research questions that challenge systems analysis methodology and develop new systems-analytic methods and tools to meet these challenges 
  2. Identify promising new applications for existing systems-analytic methods and develop illustrative case studies 
  3. Promote advanced systems analysis to a broad scientific, expert, and public audience.

ASA has three core themes: Assessment of Dynamical Systems; Systemic Risks and Robust Solutions; and Integrated Modeling and Decision Support. It also supports development of IIASA’s Advanced Systems Analysis Forum. These initiatives are supported a range of methodological approaches, details of which can be found in the Scientific Achievements.
