Back in January at AALS, I ran into Professor Seth Chandler (Houston) presenting a poster on computer models of negligence. Chandler's models (or "demonstrations") are available at the Wolfram Demonstrations Project. To run them, you must download Mathematica Player, but it is available on the site. The two models that are of primary interest in torts are: Unilateral Accident Model and Bilateral Accident Model. As Chandler notes, the models are interactive and "playful" in the sense that some of the results are unexpected.
