Agent-Based and Individual-Based Modeling: A Practical by Steven F. Railsback,Volker Grimm

By Steven F. Railsback,Volker Grimm

Agent-based modeling is a brand new method for figuring out how the dynamics of organic, social, and different advanced platforms come up from the features and behaviors of the brokers making up those platforms. This cutting edge textbook offers scholars and scientists the talents to layout, enforce, and study agent-based types. It starts off with the basics of modeling and gives an creation to NetLogo, an easy-to-use, loose, and robust software program platform. 9 chapters then each one introduce an incredible modeling suggestion and exhibit the best way to enforce it utilizing NetLogo. The ebook is going directly to current suggestions for locating the fitting point of version complexity and constructing idea for agent habit, and for examining and studying from models.

Agent-Based and Individual-Based Modeling gains concise and obtainable textual content, various examples, and routines utilizing small yet clinical types. The emphasis all through is on analysis--such as software program trying out, thought improvement, robustness research, and knowing complete models--and on layout matters like optimizing version constitution and discovering reliable parameter values.

  • The first hands-on advent to agent-based modeling, from conceptual layout to computing device implementation to parameterization and research
  • Designed for college kids and researchers around the organic and social sciences
  • Written by means of best practitioners
