Does a Terror Attack Cause Another Terror Attack? A look at Hawkes Processes in Julia

I’ve already posted this i n the Julia subreddit but thought I would share here.
This is a blog post I’ve written based on a chapter from my PhD.

I do a full Hawkes process case study on terror attacks around the world using my HawkesProcesses.jl package.

Feedback and/or comments appreciated!


Good to see more (non econ) computational social science in Julia!

I think it has big potential for doing simulations, ABMs and such for political science, sociology, international relations etc
