Abstract: Sociodynamics aims at providing a frame of theoretical concepts for designing mathematical models for a broad class of dynamical phenomena within human society. The methods developed so far integrate on one side the theory of probabilistic systems (master equation) and of nonlinear dynamics, and on the other side overarching concepts (such as dynamic utilities) from social sciences. The central concepts, i.e., the variables of state, the transition rates and the equations of evolution of the socio-configurations in probabilistic and quasi-deterministic version are exhibited. Models for migration of culturally interacting populations and for the evolution of a city and its population are presented as examples of application. References:  Wolfgang Weidlich, 2002.
