Project description

LAB-M models interactions of real persons with real incentives in massive multiplayer onlinegames (MMOG) with realistic economic environments to develop and test economic and political theories. The LAB-M world provides natural experiments and collects multi-faceted data on the interaction of people in adaptive multilayer networks. We will develop a new methodological language for social physics, rooted in adaptive multi-type multilayer networks.
