The application of modelling to social learning in monkey populations has been a neglected topic. Recently, however, a number of statistical, simulation and analytical approaches have been developed to help examine social learning processes, putative traditions, the use of social learning strategies and the diffusion dynamics of socially transmitted information. Here, I review some of the recent advances and show how they influence and combine with empirical studies of social learning.
