Growing Artificial Societies : Social Science From the Bottom Up, Paperback / softback Book

Growing Artificial Societies : Social Science From the Bottom Up Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

How do social structures and group behaviors arise from the interaction of individuals?

Growing Artificial Societies approaches this question with cutting-edge computer simulation techniques.

Fundamental collective behaviors such as group formation, cultural transmission, combat, and trade are seen to "emerge" from the interaction of individual agents following a few simple rules. In their program, named Sugarscape, Epstein and Axtell begin the development of a "bottom up" social science that is capturing the attention of researchers and commentators alike. The study is part of the 2050 Project, a joint venture of the Santa Fe Institute, the World Resources Institute, and the Brookings Institution.

The project is an international effort to identify conditions for a sustainable global system in the next century and to design policies to help achieve such a system. Copublished with the Brookings Institution
