Computer simulation in sociology has a history that stretches back almost 40 years1 and has gone through a number of phases of vigour and retrenchment. Computational social science is an approach increasingly influential in a broad range of social sciences. It involves building a computer programme model that represents a theory and then 'executing' the programme and observing the output as a way of validating the theory, making predictions about the social world or exploring the implications of social interventions. The preceding papers in this volume demonstrate clearly the scope and potential of computer simulation to contribute to the development of social science research. In this concluding piece 1, I will draw out some of the main themes relating to the methodology and practice of simulation which emerged during the Seminar. Jul 16, 2014 · Computational Sociology Hummon and Fararo 1995 in “Actors and Networks as Object” claim support for the emergence of computational sociology: computer sciences ideas and technologies, like simulation models, will help advance sociological theory Macy and Willer 2002 in “From factors to actors: computational sociology and agent-based. It concludes with a consideration of the role of statistics in simulation and the very good potential for expanded use of simulation in sociology. Abrahamson, E., & Rosenkopf, L. 1997. Social network effects on the extent of innovation diffusion: A computer simulation.
Hummon and Fararo 1995suggested that any modern science X has three pillars: a theoretical X, an empirical X, and a computational X. The third component, computational X, is usually dedicated to data extraction/acquisition, data analysis, and simulation. Claudio Cioffi-Revilla understands CSS in this way. A social simulation may fall within the rubric of computational sociology which is a recently developed branch of sociology that uses computation to analyze social phenomena. The basic premise of computational sociology is to take advantage of computer simulations Polhill & Edmonds 2007 in the construction of social theories. Jan 01, 1987 · EXPLORING POTENTIAL ELECTRIC VEHICLE UTILIZATION: A COMPUTER SIMULATION ABRAHAM D. HOROWITZ General Motors Research Laboratories, Warren, MI 48090-9057, U.S.A. and NORMAN P.

In consequence, the most recent lines of argument developed by Collins 1988 and Goldthorpe 2000, chap. 7, 158 in favor of simulation, the increasingly explicit links created between “artificial intelligence” and sociology Carley, 1996, as well as the program of genuine “computational sociology” Hummon and Fararo 1995, should be.

As balance theory is both a theory and a framework for research, we examine the dynamics of social balance processes by using an agent-based computer simulation model to explore how, ideally, social actors use balance criteria to make affective social choices. This article offers a critical analysis of four contemporary sociological debates. Systematic analysis of the relevant literature suggests the existence of a project for reformulating the methodological foundations of empirical quantitative sociology. This reconstruction shows the emergence of the following idea: an alliance of variable analysis, mechanism methodology, and simulation. MATHEMATICAL SOCIOLOGYMathematical sociology means the use of mathematics for formulating sociological theory more precisely than can be done by less formal methods. The term thus refers to an approach to theory construction rather than to a substantive field of research or a methodology of data collection or analysis; it is also not the same as statistical methods, although it is closely related.
Oct 01, 2007 · Simulation modeling provides a powerful methodology for advancing theory and research on complex behaviors and systems, yet it has been embraced more slowly in management than in some associated social science disciplines. We suspect that part of the reason is that simulation methods are not well understood. We therefore aim to promote understanding of simulation methodology and to. Jul 24, 2009 · The past decade has seen a dramatic surge of interest in the study of networks, with much of it in fields outside the “traditional” areas of mathematics, computer science, and the social sciences 1, 2.By providing a formal mechanism for representation, measurement, and modeling of relational structure, the use of network analytic methods in these new domains including physics, biology. Dale Dannefer is the Selah Chamberlain Professor of Sociology and Chair, Department of Sociology, Case Western Reserve University. He has an established reputation in the field and has created many gerontology programmes, courses and departments across the USA. He also has a significant amount of practical experience particularly in counseling.
Mar 01, 2015 · Introduction. As obesity has become a global epidemic 1, 2, what is considered a “normal” or desirable body size has also increased, especially among certain racial-ethnic and gender groups 3-5.A growing number of studies have found that body image is related to health behaviors including eating and dieting, particular among young people in the United States 3, 4, 6, and thus affects obesity.

|Computer simulation has played a signiﬁcant, though secondary, role in sociology almost as long as sociologists have had access to computers. As a methodology it has offered, and continues to.||Jan 01, 1982 · Abstract Computer simulation of any phenomenon is only as good as the underlying assumptions and theory concerning the phenomenon Hummon, 1973. Even though social systems theory is as yet quite underdeveloped, there is nevertheless a necessity to simulate such phenomena Busch, 1978 and great social pressure to begin to do so now.|
A DISCRETE-EVENT SIMULATION MODEL To explore these hypotheses and other theoretical questions, we have constructed a discreteevent simulation model of the exchange process N. P HUMMON for work flow through a work group.1 The basic components of a discrete-event simulation model are entities Pidd, 1988; Evans, 1988. JASSS is indexed by the Web of Science SSCI and Current Contents, is included in OAIster, in ibss, the International Bibliography of the Social Sciences, and in RePeC, Research Papers in Economics, and is abstracted in Sociological Abstracts. JASSS is managed using the EPRESS journal management system and acknowledges the contribution of the Department of Sociology, University of Surrey. The other major development in the field is the rise of computational sociology, which expands the mathematical toolkit with the use of computer simulations, artificial intelligence and advanced statistical methods. The latter subfield also makes use of the vast new data sets on social activity generated by social interaction on the internet. Computer simulation is more tractable but less generalizable than mathematical modeling and more rigorous but less nuanced than natural language Hanneman et al. 1995. Gilbert & Troitzsch 1999 identify three periods in the development of social simulation over the past half-century: macrosimulation, microsimulation, and agent-based models.
