Predicting Cellular Automata

Abstract: We explore the ability of a locally informed individual agent to predict the future state of a cell in systems of varying degrees of complexity using Wolfram’s one-dimensional binary cellular automata. We then compare the agent’s performance to that of two small

Modeling the Adoption of Innovations in the Presence of Geographic and Media Influences.

Abstract: While there is a large body of work examining the effects of social network structure on innovation adoption, models to date have lacked considerations of real geography or mass media. In this article, we show these features are crucial

Spatiotemporal correlations in criminal offense records.

Abstract: With the increased availability of rich behavioral datasets, we present a novel application of tools to analyze this information. Using criminal offense records as an example, we employ cross-correlation measures, eigenvalue spectrum analysis, and results from random matrix theory to
