In the humanities and related social sciences, the use of computational, statistical, and mathematical approaches has increased in recent years. The research can be characterized by (i) relying on quantifiable rather than strictly qualitative evidence, (ii) making explicit and formalizing theory with the help of mathematical and computational models, (iii) making statistical inferences about model parameters, (iv) the use of computational and automatic procedures for processing and analyzing data, and (v) searching for computational analogies through which theories from different disciplines can be unified.
