This project explores a computational model of international relations, called quantitative realism, in which the international system is represented as an abstract power structure, like this:

A random power structure

In this diagram, 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 historical power struggles?
  3. What is the nature of the current world power structure?

The project uses the Wolfram Language and C++ to investigate these questions..
