Abstract for
"Human interaction and nonlinear oscillators"

Human biology is a system of coupled oscillators interaction to produce and reproduce itself. Human interactions are one manifestation of the biology and both emerge out of and shape that underlying biology. This paper will describe relatively simple human interactions in terms of coupled or embedded oscillators and look at how known properties of such systems, like partial revivals, can be used to describe otherwise aberrant and irrational interactions.
