The power of Darwin-Volterra methodology to describe the dynamics of competing structures is being tested through exploratory checks in various fields. After energy markets, invention and innovation, transportation, it is now the time of causes of death in a certain human population, basically that of the United States.

The result of this first exploration is reported in the paper, and shows that this could be another fertile area. At first sight the major consequences of such an approach would be at the institutional level, where the perception of institutional power and the optimal use of medical tools can be drastically influenced by the new conceptual map emerging from the analysis. Properly developed, this could become a valuable contribution to the "Applied" in the IIASA logo.
