The sciences of the artificial by Herbert A Simon( Book )

142 editions published between 1968 and 2008 in 6 languages and held by 2,473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Continuing his exploration of the organization of complexity and the science of design, this new edition of Herbert Simon's classic work on artificial intelligence adds a chapter that sorts out the current themes and tools -- chaos, adaptive systems, genetic algorithms -- for analyzing complexity and complex systems. There are updates throughout the book as well. These take into account important advances in cognitive psychology and the science of design while confirming and extending the book's basic thesis: that a physical symbol system has the necessary and sufficient means for intelligent action. The chapter 'Economic Reality' has also been revised to reflect a change in emphasis in Simon's thinking about the respective roles of organizations and markets in economic systems"--Publisher's description
Organizations by James G March( Book )

176 editions published between 1958 and 2014 in 11 languages and held by 2,427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

IL s'agit ici des "organisations formelles": entreprises, administrations, groupes et organismes sociaux. La mise au point porte sur les aspects théoriques des problèmes de comportement, de motivation et de conflits. La connaissance des processus rationnels, la planification et l'innovation font l'objet des derniers développements. Une mise à jour de la bibliographie aurait ajouté à la valeur de l'ouvrage
The new science of management decision by Herbert A Simon( Book )

61 editions published between 1950 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"My research activities during the past decade have brought me into contact with developments in the use of electronic digital computers. These computers are startling even in a world that takes atomic energy and the prospects of space travel in its stride. The computer and the new decision-making techniques associated with it are bringing changes in white-collar, executive, and professional work as momentous as those the introduction of machinery has brought to manual jobs. The invitation extended to me by the School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance of New York University, to spend some weeks there as Ford Distinguished Visiting Professor and to deliver a series of public lectures, provided me a welcome opportunity to reflect about the organizational and social implications of these rapid technical developments. The lectures, slightly expanded here from the form of their public presentation, record the product--a very speculative product--of my reflections"--Preface.

21 editions published between 1977 and 1979 in 3 languages and held by 573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We respect Herbert A. Simon as an established leader of empirical and logical analysis in the human sciences while we happily think of him as also the loner; of course he works with many colleagues but none can match him. He has been writing fruitfully and steadily for four decades in many fields, among them psychology, logic, decision theory, economics, computer science, management, production engineering, information and control theory, operations research, confirmation theory, and we must have omitted several. With all of them, he is at once the technical scientist and the philosophical critic and analyst. When writing of decisions and actions, he is at the interface of philosophy of science, decision theory, philosophy of the specific social sciences, and inventory theory (itself, for him, at the interface of economic theory, production engineering and information theory). When writing on causality, he is at the interface of methodology, metaphysics, logic and philosophy of physics, systems theory, and so on. Not that the interdisciplinary is his orthodoxy; we are delighted that he has chosen to include in this book both his early and little-appreciated treatment of straightforward philosophy of physics - the axioms of Newtonian mechanics, and also his fine papers on pure confirmation theory

Complex information processing : the impact of Herbert A. Simon by David Klahr( Book )

10 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here, several leading experts in the area of cognitive science summarize their current research programs, tracing Herbert A. Simon's influence on their own work -- and on the field of information processing at large. Topics covered include problem- solving, imagery, reading, writing, memory, expertise, instruction, and learning. Collectively, the chapters reveal a high degree of coherence across the various specialized disciplines within cognition -- a coherence largely attributable to the initial unity in Simon's seminal and pioneering contributions
