"Constructal Theory of Social Dynamics" brings together for the first time social scientists and engineers who present predictive theory of social organization, as a conglomerate of mating flows that morph in time to flow more easily (people, goods, money, and information). Constructal theory was developed first for heat flow, with application to the cooling of heat-generating volumes (e.g., packages of electronics) by using concentrated heat sinks and small amounts of high-conductivity insert material. The resulting structures were tree-shaped. Natural constructal architectures can be seen in river basins and deltas, lungs, vascularized tissues, lightning, botanical trees, and leaves. Man-made flows shaped as trees are found in the cooling systems of electronics packages and windings of electric machines, finned surfaces, regenerative heat exchangers, routes for minimum-time and minimum-cost transportation, and networks for the collection and distribution of electricity, water and sewage.
