Overview

Dynamics in Human and Primate Societies presents agent-based modeling studies from archaeologists, ethnologists, sociologists, philosophers, and primatologists that examine these social and spatial dynamics without ignoring their complexity or compromising replicability. With an emphasis on small-scale societies in an effort to maximize realism in the modeling efforts applied to social evolution, this volume is an important step toward an actor-oriented, cross-disciplinary approach to understanding human behavior over time." "Presenting recent advances in software and algorithms for modeling societies, Dynamics in Human and Primate Societies is an ideal book for professionals in archaeology and cultural anthropology as well as a valuable tool for those studying primatology and computer science.
