Abstract: The evolution of scientific fields analyzed by co-word analysis and presented in strategic diagrams is simulated based on the law of cumulative advantages. The results from simulation are compared with the results of real scientific field evolution. We consider the high correspondence of both to be a proof of the working of the law of cummulative advantages in the development of scientific fields.
