Computational Social Science: A Tutorial

Péter Érdi
Kalamazoo College

Computational social science is an emerging discipline in the overlapping areas of computer science, complex systems theory, and social sciences to attack hard socioeconomic challenges. While the Internet, sensor networks, and government databases serve as rich mines of information, advanced statistical methods, network theory, dynamical systems models, and agent-based simulation methods could offer methods to predict, control, and manage social complexity.
