Researchers at CICS speak to each other in the language they have in common, which is mathematics. Empirical models and methods from the social sciences, such as ethnography, experimental psychology, experimental economics, econometrics and game theory, have a complementary model and empirical methods derived from natural sciences, such as dynamic systems, network analysis, genetics and functional magnetic resonance imaging, amongst others.
Mathematical language also provides the analytical structure that allows the production of unified explanations for human behavior in society, from the diverse scientific views that arise from multidisciplinary work.
