how to model social network systems with cellular automata
i developed code
see the last section of the revised note set of "Mathematica Programming Fundamentals"
(i suppose i should change the title to Wolfram Language Fundamentals as SW has now decided to call his programming language)
for the agent-based modeling (ABM) of social network systems (and networks of social networks)
note: it can also be used for other types of networks having no 'spatial dimension' - perhaps even neural networks for modeling cognition?).
what i'd like to know is whether it is possible to use cellular automata to model the behavior of such systems and if so, how
e.g. how would one calculate the degrees of separation between agents (individuals) using a CA (this can be very easily done using the 'friendOfFriends' code in the note set)?
