AbstractUnderstanding the complex collective behaviour of many particle systems in terms of a microscopic description based on the interaction rules among the particles is the well established purpose of Statistical Physics. This micromacro paradigm [1] is also shared by Social Science studies based on agent interactions. In many cases parallel research in both disciplines goes far beyond superficial analogies. For example, Schelling’s model [1] of residential segregation is mathematically equivalent to the zero-temperature spinexchange Kinetic Ising model with vacancies. Cross-fertilisation between these research fields opens interesting new topics of research.
