By Uri Wilensky,William Rand

The introduction of frequent speedy computing has enabled us to paintings on extra advanced difficulties and to construct and examine extra advanced versions. This publication offers an creation to 1 of the first methodologies for examine during this new box of data. Agent-based modeling (ABM) deals a brand new manner of doing technological know-how: via undertaking computer-based experiments. ABM is acceptable to complicated structures embedded in typical, social, and engineered contexts, throughout domain names that variety from engineering to ecology. An creation to Agent-Based Modeling bargains a entire description of the middle techniques, tools, and functions of ABM. Its hands-on process -- with hundreds and hundreds of examples and workouts utilizing NetLogo -- allows readers to start developing versions instantly, despite event or discipline.The ebook first describes the character and intent of agent-based modeling, then provides the method for designing and development ABMs, and at last discusses easy methods to make the most of ABMs to respond to complicated questions. positive aspects in every one bankruptcy contain step by step publications to constructing versions basically textual content; textual content bins with additional info and ideas; end-of-chapter explorations; and references and lists of proper interpreting. there's additionally an accompanying site with the entire types and code.
