Territorial animals and street gangs exhibit similar behavioral characteristics. Both organize themselves around a home base and mark their territories to distinguish claimed regions. Moorcroft et al. model the formation of territories and spatial distributions of coyote packs and their markings in [24]. We modify this approach to simulate gang dynamics in(More)
In this article we identify social communities among gang members in the Hollen-beck policing district in Los Angeles, based on sparse observations of a combination of social interactions and geographic locations of the individuals. This information, coming from LAPD Field Interview cards, is used to construct a similarity graph for the individuals. We use(More)

Moorcroft et al. model the formation of territories and spatial distributions of coyote packs and their markings in [33]. We modify this ecological approach to simulate spatial gang dynamics in(More)
