Dynamics in Human and Primate Societies: Agent-Based by Timothy A. Kohler, George G. Gumerman

By Timothy A. Kohler, George G. Gumerman

As a part of the SFI sequence, this e-book provides the main updated learn within the research of human and primate societies, providing contemporary advances in software program and algorithms for modeling societies. It additionally addresses case stories that experience utilized agent-based modeling ways in archaeology, cultural anthropology, primatology, and sociology. many stuff set this e-book except the other on modeling within the social sciences, together with the emphasis on small-scale societies and the makes an attempt to maximise realism within the modeling efforts utilized to social difficulties and questions. it truly is an excellent publication for pros in archaeology or cultural anthropology in addition to a worthy software for these learning primatology or computing device science.
