Peter Turchin is a specialist in population dynamics and mathematical modeling of historical dynamics ("cliodynamics"). Moscow (Москва́ romanised: Moskvá, IPA: see also other names) is the Capital and the largest city of The United States of America —commonly referred to as the Russia (Россия Rossiya) or the Russian Federation ( Rossiyskaya Federatsiya) is a transcontinental Country extending The University of Connecticut ( Connecticut or UConn) is the State of Connecticut 's Land-grant university. Alma mater is Latin for "nourishing mother" It was used in Ancient Rome as a title for the mother Goddess, and in Medieval New York University ( NYU) is a private, Nonsectarian, Coeducational Research University in New York City. Population dynamics is the study of marginal and long-term changes in the numbers individual weights and age composition of individuals in one or several Populations and Note The term model has a different meaning in Model theory, a branch of Mathematical logic.

In 1975 he entered the School of Biology of the Moscow State University and studied there till 1977 when his father, a Soviet dissident scientist Valentin Turchin, was extradicted from the USSR. Soviet dissidents were citizens of the Soviet Union who disagreed with the policies and actions of their government and actively protested against these actions through non-violent Valentin Fyodorovich Turchin (Валенти́н Фёдорович Турчи́н born 1931) is a Russian-American cybernetician and computer scientist He got his B.A. in Biology from the New York University (cum laude) in 1980.

Peter Turchin is a professor of University of Connecticut in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology as well as the Department of Mathematics. The University of Connecticut ( Connecticut or UConn) is the State of Connecticut 's Land-grant university. Ecology (from Greek grc οἶκος oikos, "house(hold" and grc -λογία -logia) is the scientific study of Evolutionary biology is a sub-field of Biology concerned with the origin of Species from a Common descent, and Descent of species Mathematics is the body of Knowledge and Academic discipline that studies such concepts as Quantity, Structure, Space and
Peter Turchin has made contributions to population biology and historical dynamics. He is one of the founders of theory of Cliodynamics, the new scientific discipline related to Cliometrics that investigates dynamical processes in history. Cliometrics refers to the systematic application of economic theory Econometric techniques and other formal/mathematical methods to the study of history (especially social His ideas contributed to social cycle theory through the development of the mathematical models of long-term ("secular") sociodemographic cycles. Social cycle theories are one of the earliest Social theories in Sociology. He has also suggested a novel mathematical expression of the sociological theory of Ibn Khaldun.
