Bibliography

These Systems Thinking and dynamic modeling resources include Stella® and iThink® models encompassing a wide variety of application areas. We hope they will be useful to modelers. This bibliography will be updated periodically; we would value any suggestions for additional books.

Please refer to our Resources for Learning for additional titles and our Articles with Stella or iThink for published articles that incorporate Stella.
