Participation and performance are fundamental features of society. This book presents a mathematical theory of participation and performance, and illustrates the theory with an educational case study. The theory covers a situation where a population of individuals participates and performs in a structured multi-stage environment. In the case study a population of students engage with the 'programme structure' of their course, submitting a series of assignments, their performance on these assignments being related to the knowledge structure of the course. The mathematical theory has potentially wide application beyond the case study - for example to the progression of students through the stages of educational systems in general, to the employment history of a population, to the dynamics of voter participation in elections and to the dynamics of participation in religions and in communities, etc.
