Mathematical Social Science


We are a team of researchers interested in applying mathematical and computational modelling to social sciences (particularly politics and economics), based in the Departments of Computer Science, Mathematics, Statistics, Philosophy and Economics at the University of Auckland. The central topic is collective decisions made by a group of self-motivated agents (who may be either human or software). Particular areas of interest include strategic voting in social choice theory, parametrized complexity in social choice theory, computational game theory, and utility theory.

Members (academic staff and PhD students):

Dr Mark Wilson, Prof Pat Langley
