"A Dynamical System Model in Social Sciences"






(Research Institute for the Quality of Life, Bucharest)


Abstract: We propose a mathematical model for approximating the certainty as a function of communication, in a small group decision-making process by consensus, based on a dynamical systems approach. Assuming that the communication is a one dimensional continuum variable, we analyze both first order differential models and second order differential models, and then get the general model by superposition. An experiment was organized and the data have been used to test the model. A statistical analysis of the results is also included.


Audience: The presentation will be available and aimed at undergraduate students level with a basic mathematical background.
