Abstract: The article presents results of research on the identification and evaluation of barriers faced by successors in family businesses during the first process of succession. The analysis of empirical material used grey systems theory, which was considered as an equivalent for the analysis of small samples and qualitative research. While conducting the literature review and empirical study, the authors concentrated on (a) the identification of barriers in the development of family firms and (b) eliciting the perspective of the new generation of owners in family firms entering the succession process through an empirical analysis of the assessed level of risk in relationships with family and business.
Keywords: family business, company performance, business efficiency, leadership, ownership, family, risk, research, grey incidence analysis, grey system theory

Management concepts transformation in SloveniaDuško Uršič

, 2000, original scientific article
Abstract: In the last ten years Slovenia has been faced with a quite holistic transition of general social and organisation life. In our paper, first of all, we will emphasise the model of transition of management in Slovenia with presentation of field research results from our several years lasting research of management in Slovenia. The presented model of transition is based on the systems approach as our methodological version of systems thinking. This approach has been developed by our team since 1992 and it allowed research of way of thinking of managers about the transition of management concepts and effects of prevailed application projects, both at the same time and in interaction.
Keywords: Slovenia, transition, transition economics, management, organization, research, models, systems, company theory, system theory, thinking

On plane bipartite graphs without fixed edgesKhaled Salem

Abstract: Povezava grafa ▫$H$▫, ki premore vsaj eno popolno prirejanje, je fiksna povezava, če bodisi pripada vsem popolnim prirejanjem v ▫$H$▫ bodisi nobenemu popolnemu prirejanju. Dokazano je, da je povezan, ravninski, dvodelni graf brez fiksnih povezav natanko tedaj, ko je rob vsakega lica alternirajoči cikel. Nadalje je poliheksagonalen fragment brez fiksnih povezav natanko tedaj, ko so robovi neskončnega lica in vseh nešesterokotniških lic alternirajoči cikli. Dobljeni rezultati predstavljajo razširitev rezultatov iz [F. Zhang, M. Zheng, Generalized hexagonal systems with each hexagon being resonant, Discrete Appl. Math. 36 (1992) 67-73] na posplošene haksagonalne sisteme.
Keywords: matematika, teorija grafov, popolno prirejanje, fiksna povezava, alternirajoči cikel, dvodelni ravninski graf, poliheksagonalen fragment, posplošen heksagonalen sistem, mathematics, graph theory, perfect matching, fixed edge, alternating cycle, plane bipartite graph, polyhex fragment, generalized hexagonal system

Abstract: Encyclopedia of Complexity and Systems Science provides an authoritative single source for understanding and applying the concepts of complexity theory together with the tools and measures for analyzing complex systems in all fields of science and engineering. The science and tools of complexity and systems science include theories of self-organization, complex systems, synergetics, dynamical systems, turbulence, catastrophes, instabilities, nonlinearity, stochastic processes, chaos, neural networks, cellular automata, adaptive systems, and genetic algorithms. Examples of near-term problems and major unknowns that can be approached through complexity and systems science include: The structure, history and future of the universe; the biological basis of consciousness; the integration of genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics as systems biology; human longevity limits; the limits of computing; sustainability of life on earth; predictability, dynamics and extent of earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, and other natural disasters; the dynamics of turbulent flows; lasers or fluids in physics, microprocessor design; macromolecular assembly in chemistry and biophysics; brain functions in cognitive neuroscience; climate change; ecosystem management; traffic management; and business cycles. All these seemingly quite different kinds of structure formation have a number of important features and underlying structures in common. These deep structural similarities can be exploited to transfer analytical methods and understanding from one field to another. This unique work will extend the influence of complexity and system science to a much wider audience than has been possible to date.
Keywords: cellular automata, complex networks, computational nanoscience, ecological complexity, ergodic theory, fractals, game theory, granular computing, graph theory, intelligent systems, perturbation theory, quantum information science, system dynamics, traffic management, chaos, climate modelling, complex systems, dynamical sistems, fuzzy theory systems, nonlinear systems, soft computing, stochastic processes, synergetics, self-organization, systems biology, systems science
