David K.A. Mordecai Presented an Applied Mathematics Seminar at NYU Courant Institute

David K.A. Mordecai presented an Applied Mathematics Seminar at NYU Courant Institute entitled (Not So) Distant Cousins: Some Common Statistical Relations Underlying Models Across Disparate Social Processes.

The presentation compared and contrasted specific models within political science, mathematical and economic sociology, economics, and finance in order to highlight and discuss the intuition underlying certain common statistical properties that describe information dissemination and aggregation, as well as structural innovation and behavioral propagation (e.g. cultural evolution, strategic response, imitation and technical adoption) across agent-based systems. The intent was to motivate and suggest areas for future interdisciplinary research.
