interesting mentions, needs edit!

>Finally got the name of the Soviet mathematician: Vladimir Arnold. His work seems to be too rarified even for our goals, tho he did study the stability of control systems, as well as something magnificently called catastrophe theory.

>There was at least one American periodical of Soviet cybernetics: Soviet Cybernetics Review. Also another general periodical called Joint Publications Research Service Reports occasionally had articles on the topic. Unfortunately, both of them are behind paywalls. Fucking Porky standing in the way of muh knowledge REEEEEEE An interesting sidenote is that the idea of a Soviet economy-optimizing national computer network had the CIA shitting its pants in the 60s.

>If you're interested on the Western version of cybernetics, Operations Research is what you have to look for. Although resource planning in particular is not the main focus of research, actually more complex results were found, such as ways to solve non-linear systems.
