Course Description

How we can build the course? First to present the modelling as instruments of the social systems study. And to demonstrate constructed models, describing the realisation methods of models.

We start the narration from models of individual. Further we realise the transition on base of sociological theories from personalities in real society to agent of "artificial society". Setting the principles and problems for creating of "artificial life" models. Then we consider the individual in the environmental conditions. The individual interactions in the group define the interpersonal interactions. They generate the models of contact (the plays) of agents in accordance with psychological theory. The individual interactions on base of the gender difference form the gender relations. They influence on the agent behaviour and define the rules of marriage pairs forming. We demonstrate the model of family creation. Thereby we realise the "bottom-up" transition from individual to social structures. The local interaction of individuals generates the social organisation. We show the social system models where the society exists on the time interval. It has the order from 10 to 100 years.

The second course part is devoted to the models of global processes. The society model realises on "top-down" rule. It presumes the social structure is controlling the individual. The personality becomes the imperceptible "small screw". The time interval has the order from 100 to 1000 years. The ethnos is selected from the social system structure. On base of the ethnical system we are building the state system. Finally, we denote the model of the world dynamics. The question is global forecast of the future human civilisation, which is done by means of computer.
