Graduate Workshop in Computational Modeling

Homework Problem (2005)

Past homework problems: standing ovation (1995-97), is that seat taken (1998), you ought to be in pictures (1999), cocktail party (2000), deja vu (2001), network news (2002), fire (2003), and go Lance (2004).

Your Turn

Consider the following situation:

A group of, say, ten students each need to give a five minute talk, one after the other. The order of presentations is not specified. What happens?

  • Model, using whatever techniques you wish, the above scenario.

  • Suggest some standard social science scenarios that could be usefully modeled using such a process.

    Potential Solutions (to submit your solution, email them to at the Graduate Workshop were given a very limited time to complete their homework):
