By Cilli Sobiech

This thesis constitutes a rare cutting edge learn procedure in shifting the suggestions and strategies of complicated structures to threat learn. It ambitiously bridges the boundaries among theoretical, empirical and methodical learn paintings and integrates those fields into one complete process of facing uncertainty in socio-ecological structures. The constructed agent-based simulation goals on the dynamics of social vulnerability within the thought of process of the German North coastline. hence, the social simulation presents an analytical way to discover the person, relational, and spatial features resulting in dynamics of vulnerability in society. Combining complexity technological know-how and threat examine via the strategy of agent-based simulation hereby emphasizes the significance of knowing interrelations contained in the procedure for the system's improvement, i.e. for the evolving. in response to a vulnerability evaluate relating to vulnerability features, current hazard habit and self-protection personal tastes of personal families opposed to the affects of flooding and typhoon surges, attainable approach trajectories can be explored by way of simulation experiments. The system-analytical strategy hence contributes to an built-in attention of multi-dimensional and context-sensitv social phenomena resembling vulnerability. in addition it achieves conceptually and strategically appropriate implications for danger learn and complicated platforms research.
