The Dose of the Threat Makes the Resistance for Cooperation

Greater memory size is unfavorable to evolutionary success when there is no threat. In contrast, the presence of an appropriate level of threat triggers the emergence of a self-protection mechanism for cooperation. This work is published in Advances in Complex Systems, 2017, DOI: 10.1142/S0219525916500156.

Attention Competition with Advertisement

In this study, we investigate the impact of advertisement pressure on a cultural market where consumers have a limited attention capacity. This work is published in Physical Review E (PRE), 2014, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevE.90.032801.

Iterated Prisoners Dilemma with limited attention

In order to beat defection, players do not need a full memorization of each action of all opponents. There exists a critical memory capacity threshold to beat defectors. This work is published in Condensed Matter Physics (CMP), 2014, DOI: 10.5488/CMP.17.33001.

Ongoing Projects

Graph-based Analysis of Turkish Newspapers & Writers

We work with NLP team of Işık University to investigate the co-occurance graphs of Turkish newspapers & writers to extract some pecularities of the writer, based on complex network analysis.

Prestige and Quality in Bipartite Networks

How to quantify simultaneously the prestige of assessor and the quality of assesses. In contrast to well known HITS algorithm, we consider prestige as neither making an abundance of assessments, nor making a scarcity of assessments but somewhere in between.

Predictive Agent Based Models

Darpa announced a "New program seeks to develop simulated social systems of varying complexity against which to test the accuracy of social science modeling methods." Aim is to creating artificial but socially plausible simulations with causal ground truth to quantify the explanatory and predictive performance of a range of social science modeling methods.

This project has started with Marco Pangallo and some other fellows in Santa Fe Institute during CSSS2017.

The formation and spread of religious communities

In Jeremy's words, "How novel sub-communities (i.e. Sufis) arise from relatively "stable" network structures (i.e. hadith-transmission or ascetic communities)."" What can complex network analysis tell us about the emergence of novel communities? Can ABM give us insights about it?

This project has started with Jeremy Farrell and some other fellows in Santa Fe Institute during CSSS2017.

A cross-lingual analysis of Wikipedia

Consider each article as a node and article’s links to other pages as edges of a sub-network. Different languages has a different or maybe similar sub-networks constructed from a given particular node. What does network structure reveal about cultural differences?

This project has started with Kyle Lemoi and some other fellows in Santa Fe Institute during CSSS2017.

Future Works

Let's collaborate

We deeply believe in the importance of an interdisciplinary approach for making a better scientific research. The ability to work on qualitative social problems by the means of the mathematical and computational tools is marvelous. If you are interested in one of our projects, or you share the same hunch for your own projects, please feel free the contact us. We would be happy to collaborate.
