An introduction to social choice theory, which uses mathematics to study the strengths/weaknesses of voting systems, arbitration schemes, and other methods of group decision making. Lots of pictures, requires only basic linear algebra.

Interacting particle systems (IPS) are models for complex phenomena involving a large number of interrelated components. Examples exist within all areas of natural and social sciences, such as traffic flow on highways, constituents of a cell, etc.

The aim of this thesis is to developed an efficient procedure for the application of BEM to transient scalar wave propagation problems, investigating the coerciveness property of the related energy functional, avoiding the frequency domain analysis.
