  2. 2. Gaussian process models of social change

    Author : Björn Rune Helmer Blomqvist; David J. T. Sumpter; Ranjula Bali Swain; Ian Vernon; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Gaussian processes; Bayesian statistics; Dynamical systems; Social sciences; Tillämpad matematik och statistik; Applied Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : Social systems produce complex and nonlinear relationships in the indicator variables that describe them. Traditional statistical regression techniques are commonly used in the social sciences to study such systems. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modelling collective movement and transport network formation in living systems

    Author : Arianna Bottinelli; David Sumpter; Renaud Lambiotte; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; animal collective behaviour; transport networks; crowd dynamics; complex systems; ants; fish; Tillämpad matematik och statistik; Applied Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : The emergence of collective patterns from repeated local interactions between individuals is a common feature to most living systems, spanning a variety of scales from cells to animals and humans. Subjects of this thesis are two aspects of emergent complexity in living systems: collective movement and transport network formation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mathematical models of social norms and petty corruption

    Author : Alexander Funcke; Kimmo Eriksson; Pontus Strimling; David Sumpter; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mathematics Applied Mathematics; matematik tillämpad matematik;

    Abstract : Corruption is a problem all around the world, but the extent of the problem varies between countries and situations. In this thesis, I focus on how corruption levels can change when they are culturally determined. For this reason, I study the dynamics of the cultural underpinnings: social norms and conventions.

  5. 5. Modeling Collective Decision-Making in Animal Groups

    Author : Boris Granovskiy; David J. T. Sumpter; Mary R. Myerscough; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; collective animal behavior; collective intelligence; swarm intelligence; wisdom of crowds; mathematical modeling; stochastic modeling; agent-based modeling; Markov chain models;

    Abstract : Many animal groups benefit from making decisions collectively. For example, colonies of many ant species are able to select the best possible nest to move into without every ant needing to visit each available nest site. READ MORE
