  • V družboslovju se v zadnjem desetletju dogaja na polno. Če ste spregledali, tega nikar ne ponovite tudi tokrat: Computational Social Science – Making the Links.

  • Znanstveno o znanosti: študija Chavalariasa in Cointeta dokazuje obstoj filomemetičnih vzorcev v evoluciji znanstvenih disciplin.
  • Še en primer sodelovanja med matematiko in družboslovjem: študija rasti urbanih naselbin v Centralni Ameriki pred prihodom Evropejcev.”…for each period, total settlement area increases with population size according to a scale invariant relation, with exponent α= 2/3-5/6, in agreement with expectations of emerging theory. These findings, from an urban system that evolved independently from old-world cities, suggest that principles of human settlement organization are very general and may apply to the entire range of human history.”
