System dynamics is an approach to understanding the behaviour of complex systems over time. It deals with internal feedback loops and time delays that affect the behaviour of the entire system. What makes using system dynamics different from other approaches to studying complex systems is the use of feedback loops and stocks and flows. These elements help describe how even seemingly simple systems display baffling nonlinearity. wiki
This is the Sphinx SD Tools project ("sphinxes")
This project was registered on SourceForge.net on Sep 18, 2006, and is described by the project team as follows:
The Sphinx project is dedicated to create common accessible environment for system dynamics simulation. This software is developed on Java 6 platform and use Java Swing GUI.
