Reliability of Large and Complex Systems, previously titledReliability of Large Systems, is an innovative guide to the current state and reliability of large and complex systems.

In addition to revised and updated content on the complexity and safety of large and complex mechanisms, this new edition looks at the reliability of nanosystems, a key research topic in nanotechnology science. The author discusses the importance of safety investigation of critical infrastructures that have aged or have been exposed to varying operational conditions. This reference provides an asymptotic approach to reliability; its methodology, whilst largely mathematical, is designed to help the reader understand and construct general models of large and systems in a wide range of engineering fields.

  • A complete and innovative guide to the reliability of large and complex systems
  • Provides the reader with a strong foundational knowledge of safety investigation into critical infrastructures; the main research area in the world of safety science
  • Explains how to construct large, reliable and safe systems in variable operation conditions
Professor Kolowrocki is the Head of Mathematics at the Faculty of Navigation, Gdynia Maritime University, Poland. His main research focus is on the mathematical modeling of safety and reliability of complex systems and processes. He has published several books and over 300 scientific articles and papers, and is the President of Polish ...
