This report documents the scientific research work done to date on developing a generalized mathematical model depicting a combined economic-ecological-social system with the goal of making it available to the scientific community. The model is preliminary and has not been tested or fully explored. The model system described here is intended to represent the first steps in combining (in simple fashion) the basic dynamic elements of an ecosystem functioning with a human society and an economy in a closed system with a non-limiting supply of energy (the model is based on flows of mass between system compartments while the total mass is conserved).
