simulation of political and ethnic conflict - I program in python 2.5, if there is anything I can do to help with getting my program on the CoSSci gateway, do not hesitate to ask.

fantastic, can I use my previous article as a reference (for example i look at an ideological split between lebanon's shiite's and need to reference my conclusion that the war was about the nations identity as an arabic or western nation)

I am also emailing to talk about whether it would be possible to make a shorter follow up article to my last one. In my thesis I did a version of my model in which i enforced partition and migration between the two groups midway through each run and came up with some interesting results. Thanks for your time again.

Yes, Dan, do go ahead with another submission, you have a very strong model. As I mentioned, with variants, it might be a good simulation for our CoSSci Complex Social Science Gateway backed by a second article.

its the same as the basic model with two functions added in, one to define enclaves and one to make agents migrate there after turn 500. Doug (talk) 06:33, 31 January 2013 (PST)
