About the Authors
  • This book explores the intersection between cognitive sciences and social sciences. In particular, it explores the intersection between individual cognitive modeling and modeling of multi-agent interaction (social stimulation). The two contributing fields--individual cognitive modeling (especially cognitive architectures) and modeling of multi-agent interaction (including social simulation and, to some extent, multi-agent systems)--have seen phenomenal growth in recent years. However, the interaction of these two fields has not been sufficiently developed. We believe that the interaction of the two may be more significant than either alone.

    • Explores a heretofore largely unexplored area
    • Chapters are written by leading researchers in various disciplines. They provide provocative new insight into relevant issues and solid research
    • Intended for researchers and students in cognitive, behavioral, and social sciences but it may also be read by interested laymen
