    Title in it's entirety: "What Would the First Comprehensive Textbook in Computational Social Science Look Like? A Special Exclusive Preview for CSCS Michigan Students."

    CSCS Michigan students have been leading pioneers in Computational Social Science, as have Mason CSS students at our Center for Social Complexity and CSS Department. In this talk I will describe a new CSS textbook project to share with students, including detailed content, and invite feedback. The scientific paradigm is founded on Simon's theory of complex adaptive social systems, developed with formalisms and computational modeling.
