Simulation in Social Science: Readings

Excerpt

This book of readings on Simulation in Social Science has been assembled so that the efforts to simulate complex individual and group processes might be more adequately understood by our colleagues and students--and especially by our lay friends. The volume provides source material on the use of man, man-computer, and all- computer simulation which will acquaint the reader with the recent and expanding use of simulation as a technique for experimentation and teaching in the behavioral sciences.

The readings include pieces on the use of simulation in economics, political science, psychology, and sociology. Materials are included on its employment in military and industrial operations, as well as in management activities (including those in education). The opening essay by Richard Dawson presents an overview of and orientation to the many activities in the field. The Glossary gives meanings of terms widely used in handling concepts in simulation. And for those hardy souls who find time to read further, there is a short, classified bibliography.
