"Obesity" simulation models

Post by James Thompson » Wed Dec 16, 2015 4:17 pm

A PhD student of Prof Susan Howick (Strathclyde) is looking for system dynamics models developed around dynamic hypotheses that include "obesity"; that is, social, economic, health related, biomedical.... Her student, Dominik Jung, is in process of composing his research question and has targeted obesity as a topic. Unfortunately, with the exception of Tarek's excellent work called thinking in cicrles, few if any models reach publication. If you are aware of any, please let me know or pass them along to me. All work will be given due attribution...and gratitude!

There is a large literature on the dynamics of obesity at both the population and individual levels, including the attached work by Hazhir Rahmandad, Peter Hovmand, Nate Osgood, and colleagues (see attached). The references in these papers also identify other dynamic models in the literature on this topic. (A Web of Science and/or SD Bibliography search would reveal these and others.)

Thanks to Jack Homer and John Sterman for sending these attached documents.
