Tipping Points at the Verge of Decision-Making Processes in Biology and Economics
Tipping points are implied in every process where small perturbations lead to dramatic changes. These processes range from climate changes, to changes in consumers choice, to epidemics or break down of financial markets. Yet, there is little to no common understanding of the shared overarching principles governing tipping points in these very different systems, as well as of their unique aspects. The proposed project aims at addressing tipping points at play in biology and economics by commonly describing them through mathematical modelling. Developed models of tipping points dynamics in these system shall facilitate the predictability, and thus, manipulation of the decision-making process. This interdisciplinary approach should advance our knowledge of tipping points in biology and economics but also in other areas of our lives.
