The Ancestral Homeland of the Carriers of the Proto-Indo-European Language: Mathematical Models for the Study of Linguistic Information
This paper presents the results of theoretical analysis and computer modeling, which suggest that two main linguistic populations characterized today as the division of Indo-European languages into the so-called "satem-centum" language ranges could emerge in the model Indo-European language community approximately 3500-4000 years ago. The results of computer modeling show that among the two main hypotheses of the formation of the Proto-Indo-Europeans (the Anatolian and Kurgan hypotheses), the latter corresponds to the time estimates we obtained to a greater extent. Some of the problems of the search for the ancestral homeland of the peoples that were carriers of the Proto-Indo-European language are analyzed.
