Assessing Structural Patterns Among Warlord Groups
Support the construction and analysis of a longitudinal, multi-modal, and multi-dimensional agent-based model of two warlord groups. Given the dearth of existing rigorous inquiries, the analysis will limit its initial scope and will exclusively consider two inter-related conflicts, each of which contained several distinct warlord groups: the Liberian civil war (1991-1997) and the Sierra Leonean civil war (1991-2002).
Our algorithmic network science group explores network models in computer science, biology, physics, and mathematics with the intention of creating novel algorithms for the purpose of knowledge creation. On the application level, we are looking to apply this work to various problems in counter- insurgency, intelligence analysis, cyber-security, social networking, and biology.
Our efforts in the Biological Networks section of the Network Science Center at West Point include the generation of large biological data sets and applying novel and existing Social Network Analysis algorithms in an effort to characterize the network of interactions between the genes and metabolites studied experimentally. We are designing a Bioinformatics elective course to be taught to West Point cadets from various majors who share a desire to generate predictive models of various biological systems based on these data.
