The complexity of two: Dyadic processes and evolving social aggregations

William Griffin, Xun Li

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Computational models of aggregated social agents have two major faults: (1) inter-individual entrainment is ignored; and (2) rule-sets governing behavior are invariant to history. Together these shortcomings impede our ability to generate realistic models of complex evolving social processes. To illustrate how even simple couplings within an established dyad generates unexpected outcomes, we present our findings from two computer models (agent-based, particle filter) of married couples.
