Cohn, J. Casual groups of monkeys and men
Joel E. Cohn. Casual groups of monkeys and men; stochastic models of elemental social systems
The book presents the first recorded observations of the dynamics of group formation and dissolution among human children in free play. These observations are consistent with the dynamics assumed by the LOST (linear one-step transition) models. Such models suggest generalizations that may apply to epidemiology, the sociology of rumors, and traffic control. Within biology, this approach offers ways of linking the behavior of individuals with the population ecology of a species.--Harvard University Press
