Simulations from Psychology and Sociology

A simulation of joint actions of women groups.

Joint actions are generated purely by the given believe and intention bases of the actors and by 'empirical' procedures of choice of actions. Actions are represented by PROLOG facts. Different systems of actions emerge from different believe bases. Realistically group structures could be observed.

Programmes from the domain of psychology.

Two PROLOG programmes come from psychological well-known group preference systems. The interpretations of the preferences are determined by empirical questionnaires, for instance 'I like X'.
