My bachelor's "thesis" was a VERY basic connection between Senge's
Archetypes (and models) and Infinite Series... specifically in validating
the model for modelling the diffusion of Innovation.

I have sought to attempt to create a similar model (with Calculus) to
encompass Senge's Archetypes.

Would anyone want to work on such a "translation" with me.

My model basically took a simple system and extracted Archetypes, then I
modelled all the reinforcements and limits into basic formulas, and
constructed a series from them... then found the limit of the series, so I
could try and predict where the system was going. I want to construct a
"general" series though...
