This book presents a number of modelling and simulation approaches and their relations to problems in philosophy of science. It addresses sociologists and other social scientists interested in formal modelling, mathematical sociology, and computer simulation as well as computer scientists interested in social science .

Model building in the social sciences can increasingly rely on well elaborated formal theories. At the same time inexpensive large computational capacities are now available. Both make computer-based model building and simulation possible in social science, whose central aim is in particular an understanding of social dynamics. Such social . Simulation and social science Using computer simulation in the social sciences is a rather new idea – although the first examples date from the s, simulation only began to be used widely in the s – but one that has enormous potential. This is because simulation is an excellent way of modelling and understanding social . "Simulations in the Consolidation and Utilization of Knowledge about International Relations." Pp. in Randall L.

This report, third in a series, contains descriptive and analytical information on the use of simulation/games in elementary and secondary social studies classrooms. One hundred and thirteen teachers who are well versed in the use of simulation/games and who use them in their classes were surveyed. Among the findings are the following: (1) the major source of information about simulation. This book gives an overview of the state of the art in five different approaches to social science simulation on the individual level. The volume contains microanalytical simulation models designed for policy implementation and evaluation, multilevel simulation .
