Call it the mathematics of misery. A professor from the University of Connecticut claims that his numerical calculations predict years of turmoil and unrest for the world. A pioneer in a new field of math known as “cliodynamics,” Russia-born Peter Turchin — who’s in the university’s departments of ecology and evolutionary biology, anthropology and mathematics — told the Daily Mail that his calculations “treat history as just another science.” According to Turchin’s homepage, cliodynamics “uses the tools of complexity science and cultural evolution to study the dynamics of historical empires and modern nation-states.”
