We present an agent-based model that allows the user to employ different social theories to try to explain and predict social changes. The model is set in the context of an armed insurgency in a developing country. We demonstrate the capabilities of the model by showing how it simulates a news report-based scenario under different theories and combinations(More)
Much current theory concerning nationalism holds that elites commonly create or cause popular nationalism. In part, that thesis may be due to an overwhelming emphasis in research on nationalism on positive cases: cases where nationalism has appeared, ignoring cases where it has not. In this article, I challenge the thesis by showing numerous historical(More)
The Pre-Intervention Analytical Framework (PIAF) for sensemaking includes a conceptual design and a design for computationally enabled analysis. The conceptual design, previously developed by the Engineer Research and Development Center, Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (Whalley et al. 2014), included sensemaking factor maps that are derived(More)
We approximate the Bolker-Pacala model of population dynamics with the logistic Markov chain and analyze the latter. We find the asymptotics of the degenerated hypergeometric function and use these to prove a local CLT and large deviations result. We also state global limit theorems and obtain asymptotics for the first passage time to the boundary of a(More)
