ICASA's research is characterized by the study of dynamical systems, control theory, mathematical physics, and economics using the tools of theoretical analysis, modeling, and simulation. ICASA's researchers study the additive effects of efficient design in complex interdependent systems. Work is conducted in four strategic areas: basic research on complex additive systems; applications to real-world problems in the private and public sectors; development of key enabling technologies to assist in applying research results; and establishing training and education programs.
