Mathematical Modeling of Group Creativity and Cultural Evolution
Santiago Guisasola

Segunda-feira, 16 de setembro de 2019, 17:00
Sala 232

This is a talk on game theory and its applications to the analytical study of culture. Special focus is given to the thesis that group creativity is a strong driving force behind cultural evolution, and, as such, its central factors should be identified and modeled. Steps in this direction have involved fascinating experiments and the removal of mathematical obstacles and mysteries present in the literature; all of which is outlined in this talk. The presentation ends with the beginnings of a theory of group creativity and future directions.

 A brief history of the research field is given.

Technical details are kept to a minimum without significant loss to the exposition of the main ideas, arguments, and results.

Keywords: group creativity, coordination, convention, culture, diffusion of innovation, externalities, networks, game theory, orthogonal decomposition
