The Munich Simulation Group


is an informal group of researchers affiliated with the University of Munich (LMU). Most members work in the industry and in the educational sector. Our group writes simulation programmes for social systems and for processes of scientific development.
We investigate all kinds of social systems, from psychology, economics, sociology, political theory to game theory and theory of crises.
