A System of Systems (SoS), as distinct from a system of parts, is a system comprised of pre-existing autonomous and interdependent systems.This book provides two unique contributions to the body of knowledge of System of Systems (SoS) theory, management, and engineering. Firstly, it assesses the dynamics of a SoS through the use of five core characteristics, namely autonomy, belonging, connectivity, diversity and emergence. Secondly, it describes a mechanism of collaboration whereby the characteristics of autonomy and belonging are satisficing for the SoS constituents and the resultant emergent behavior provides value for the observer.
