COGS 222: Modeling Social Behavior

Units: 4

A broad approach to understanding and using formal models to study social behavior and organization. We will take an interdisciplinary approach, drawing from the social sciences and from evolutionary ecology in roughly equal measures. Methodology will focus on agent-based modeling, but also included some evolutionary game theory and related approaches. Topic covered include foraging, disease transmission, cooperation, segregation, social norms, and the cultural evolution of language.
