Index aThese lectures develop simple models of complex social processes using nonlinear dynamics and mathematical biology. Dynamical analogies between seemingly disparate social and biological phenomena - revolutions and epidemics, arms races, and ecosystem dynamics - are revealed and exploited. Nonlinear Dynamics, Mathematical Biology, and Social Science invites social scientists to relax - in some cases abandon - the predominant assumption of perfectly informed utility maximization and explore social dynamics from such perspectives as epidemiology and predator-prey theory. The volume includes a concentrated course on nonlinear dynamical systems aBiological systems Mathematical models aSocial sciences Mathematical models
