Mathematical Representations of Development Theories

Singer, Burton; Spilerman, Seymour

In this chapter we explore the consequences of particular stage linkage structures for the evolution of a population. We first argue the importance of constructing dynamic models of development theories and show the implications of various stage connections for population movements. A second focus concerns inverse problems: How the stage linkage structure may be recovered from survey data of the kind collected by developmental psychologists.
