Network Effects on Complex Adaptive Systems Approach to Modeling Human and Nature Dynamics

Patrick Neal, Zining Yang and Mark Abdollahian


In the context of sustainable development, complex adaptive systems frameworks can help address the coupling of macro social, environmental and economic constraint and opportunity with individual agency. Using a simple evolutionary game approach, we fuse endogenously derived socio-economic system dynamics from human and nature dynamics (HANDY) theory with Prisoner’s Dilemma spatial intra-societal economic transactions. We then explore the potential of spectral information from the social network adjacency matrices to predict synchronization dynamics.
