Abstract:

Modern powerful methods are used to revive classical Lewinian field theory concepts. This poster symposium will describe a unique convergence of vector psychology, topology, social network analysis, motion capture, and computational modeling methods. This poster introduces the U.S. Armys Target Behavioral Response Laboratory, an interdisciplinary group that evaluates effectiveness of non-lethal weapons, and introduces the conceptual framework for four subsequent posters on the Crowd Behavior Research Program at the TBRL. Novel resulting approaches and analyses can be brought to bear on the challenges of crowd behavior experimentation.
