### Mathematical models in social sciences

The specialization track “Mathematical models in social sciences” will take place at the University of L’Aquila. The proposed curriculum covers newly developed mathematical modelling approaches, aiming at realizing practical solutions for smart and healthy communities. UAQ has longstanding collaborations with the Imperial College of London (UK) and with the University of Muenster (Germany) on many-agent modelling and mean-field limits in several branches of social sciences such as opinion formation, emergence of collective motion, and the social behaviour of largely crowded communities (the latter also in collaboration with the Universities of Catania and Ferrara, in Italy); the UAQ team has a longstanding expertise on "nonlocal aggregation models", an emerging subject in applied mathematical research with applications in particular to the modelling of criminal behaviour in urban areas. Important achievements have been also carried out at UAQ in the area of nonlinear conservation laws with applications to traffic modeling and population dynamics.
