Summary
  • "Computational Approaches to Studying the Co-evolution of Networks and Behaviour in Social Dilemmas shows students, researchers, and professionals how to use computation methods, rather than mathematical analysis, to answer research questions for an easier, more productive method of testing their models. Illustrations of general methodology are provided and explore how computer simulation is used to bridge the gap between formal theoretical models and empirical applications. An accompanying website supports the text"--
  • "This book looks at an alternative approach to studying co-evolution of social networks and behaviour in social dilemmas that relies less on mathematical analysis, and instead uses computation methods to answer research questions"--
