Complex Systems Summer School 2019



Signup page for Matt Zefferman's workshop!

How do researchers reason through the steps of making evolutionary models? Here is your chance to try. On Monday Matt Zefferman will introduce evolutionary game theory and on Wednesday Liz Hobson will describe her empirical work on hierarchy and parakeet aggression. However, there currently isn't a theory about what hierarchical aggression strategies we should expect to evolve under different conditions. Matt and Liz have been thinking about modeling this and thought it would be a useful example for CSSS students interested in walking through the modeling process. When canonical models are presented in papers, coursework or textbooks there is often little information about how the sausage was made. Much like sausage-making - model-making is often not pretty. But hopefully you get delicious sausage at the end of the process. Also, like sausage-making most modeling is done in private. This will be Liz and Matt's first attempt to try it in public. The effort might fail spectacularly (this often happens more often than not), but going through the process can still be useful.
