Forms of non-random copying error provide sources of inherited variation yet their effects on cultural evolutionary dynamics are poorly understood. Focusing on variation in granny and reef knot forms, we present a mathematical model that specifies how these variant frequencies are affected by non-linear interactions between copying fidelity, mirroring, handedness and repetition biases. Experiments on adult humans allowed these effects to be estimated using approximate Bayesian computation and th...

In this paper we will discuss knots in material culture, giving an overview of their importance and range of usage. We will then discuss a method of characterization for these knots and a method to study these knots through cultural evolution. We then give some preliminary results and ideas for further study.
