From the reviews:"The book is a comprehensive review of the mathematical models of science from its origins. ... each chapter has `checkpoints', i.e., a box or a table presenting either a list of relevant questions together with short answers or a summary of the key-points discussed. This particular structure makes the book especially suited for graduate students and scholars ... . experts will surely appreciate the richness and depth of the cited literature, for the first time so well organized into a single book." (Stefano Balietti, Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation, Vol. 15 (3), 2012)
