Project Aim

The KAPSARC Toolkit for Behavioral Analysis (KTAB) project is developing an open source model-building platform that facilitates the systematic and rigorous analysis of collective decision-making processes (CDMPs).

CDMPs are those in which a group of individual actors interacts to arrive at a single decision (often referred to as bargaining or negotiating). CDMPs could include processes such as the deliberations of a corporate board, the internal debates of ruling parties, the voting of electorates, and the haggling between seller and buyer at a market stall, albeit with different actors operating according to different rules.

KTAB is intended to support reasonable analyses of the potential outcomes of CDMPs involving a range of modeled groups. To download the software, source code, data, presentations, and for more information see
