Kinship structures create persistent channels for language transmission (2017)
Journal Article
Guillot, E. G., Lansing, J. S., Abundo, C., Jacobs, G. S., Guillot, E., Thurner, S., …Cox, M. P. (2017). Kinship structures create persistent channels for language transmission. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 114(49), 12910-12915. https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1706416114

© 2017, National Academy of Sciences. All rights reserved. Languages are transmitted through channels created by kinship systems. Given sufficient time, these kinship channels can change the genetic and linguistic structure of populations. In traditi...

High frequency haplotypes are expected events, not historical figures (2016)
Journal Article
Guillot, E., & Cox, M. P. (in press). High frequency haplotypes are expected events, not historical figures. F1000Research, https://doi.org/10.12688/f1000research.7023.2

Cultural transmission of reproductive success states that successful men have more children and pass this raised fecundity to their offspring. Balaresque and colleagues found high frequency haplotypes in a Central Asian Y chromosome dataset, which th... Read More about High frequency haplotypes are expected events, not historical figures.

Relaxed observance of traditional marriage rules allows social connectivity without loss of genetic diversity (2015)
Journal Article
Hazelton, M. L., Guillot, E. G., Karafet, T. M., Stephen Lansing, J., Sudoyo, H., & Cox, M. P. (2015). Relaxed observance of traditional marriage rules allows social connectivity without loss of genetic diversity. Molecular Biology and Evolution, 32(9), 2254-2262. https://doi.org/10.1093/molbev/msv102

© 2015 The Author. Marriage rules, the community prescriptions that dictate who an individual can or cannot marry, are extremely diverse and universally present in traditional societies. A major focus of research in the early decades of modern anthro... Read More about Relaxed observance of traditional marriage rules allows social connectivity without loss of genetic diversity.

Climate change influenced female population sizes through time across the Indonesian archipelago (2013)
Journal Article
Guillot, E. G., Guillot, E., Tumonggor, M. K., Lansing, J. S., Sudoyo, H., & Cox, M. P. (2013). Climate change influenced female population sizes through time across the Indonesian archipelago. Human Biology, 85(1-3), 135-152. https://doi.org/10.3378/027.085.0306

Lying at the crossroads of Asia and the Pacific world, the Indonesian archipelago hosts one of the world's richest accumulations of cultural, linguistic, and genetic variation. While the role of human migration into and around the archipelago is now... Read More about Climate change influenced female population sizes through time across the Indonesian archipelago.

Traffic instabilities in self-organized pedestrian crowds (2012)
Journal Article
Guillot, E. G., Moussaïd, M., Guillot, E., Moreau, M., Fehrenbach, J., Chabiron, O., …Theraulaz, G. (2012). Traffic instabilities in self-organized pedestrian crowds. PLoS Computational Biology, 8(3), e1002442. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pcbi.1002442

In human crowds as well as in many animal societies, local interactions among individuals often give rise to self-organized collective organizations that offer functional benefits to the group. For instance, flows of pedestrians moving in opposite di... Read More about Traffic instabilities in self-organized pedestrian crowds.

Modeling crowd dynamics through coarse-grained data analysis
Journal Article
Motsch, S., Moussaid, M., Guillot, E., Moreau, M., Pettré, J., Theraulaz, G., …Degond, P. (in press). Modeling crowd dynamics through coarse-grained data analysis. Mathematical Biosciences and Engineering, 15(6), 1271-1290. https://doi.org/10.3934/mbe.2018059

Understanding and predicting the collective behaviour of crowds is essential to improve the efficiency of pedestrian flows in urban areas and minimize the risks of accidents at mass events. We advocate for the development of crowd tra... Read More about Modeling crowd dynamics through coarse-grained data analysis.
