Project Overview

This is an open science project that explores a computational model of international relations, called quantitative realism. The international system is represented as an abstract power structure, like this: Larger nodes are more powerful, solid lines represent cooperation, and dashed lines represent conflict.

The major questions are:

  1. How do power structures evolve in time?
  2. Does the abstract model say anything meaningful about actual historical power struggles?
  3. What is the nature of the current world power structure?

The project uses the Wolfram and Julia programming languages to investigate these questions. The code lives in this Github repository.
