Following the ideas of L.N.Gumilev, we introduce the mathematical model of ethnogenesis which describes the dynamics of subgroups in the developing polity in terms of ordinary differential equations. The bust dynamics associated with the rise and fall of civilisations is modelled as an excitation process, which is the non-linear phenomenon, well known in mathematical biology. We consider deterministic as well as the stochastic version of the model. We also expand the model to study the interaction between two polities undergoing ethnogenesis. Investigation is performed using analytical methods as well as numerical integration (i.e. MATLAB simulation).
