Nonlinear Dynamics, Mathematical Biology, and Social Science free pdf These lectures develop simple models of complex social processes using nonlinear dynamics and mathematical biology. Dynamical analogies between seemingly disparate social and biological phenomenarevolutions and epidemics, arms races, and ecosystem dynamicsare revealed and exploited. Nonlinear Dynamics, Mathematical Biology, and Social Science invites social scientists to relaxin some cases abandonthe 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.
