Quantitative Sociodynamics shows how the general concepts for modelling complex systems can be applied to the description of social processes. It provides a unified and comprehensive overview of various stochastic methods, their interrelations, and properties. In addition it introduces the most important concepts from non-linear dynamics (synergetics, chaos theory). A connection of these methods with decision theoretical concepts leads to a fundamental dynamic model for behavioural changes which includes many established models from the social sciences as special cases. Moreover, it implies numerous new results which are illustrated by computer simulations.
