Areas of Interest
Brief list of research and teaching interests:American government, research methodology, computer simulation, interest group politics, formal theory.
Research Statement:I’m currently working with the Swarm toolkit to do agent-based models of politics. I recently finished work on the Artificial Stock Market and the page for that is here http://ArtStkMkt.sourceforge.net
I’m increasingly well entertained by the idea that aggregate outcomes don’t necessarily reflect the intention of any particular actor or group, but rather they emerge.
References:I’ve recently coalesced many of my online offerings here: http://www.ku.edu/~pauljohn. That includes the Perl scripts. Other class related stuff and Swarm RPMS are on the lark account.
