By Uri Wilensky,William Rand

The introduction of frequent quickly computing has enabled us to paintings on extra complicated difficulties and to construct and research extra advanced versions. This booklet presents an advent to 1 of the first methodologies for study during this new box of data. Agent-based modeling (ABM) bargains a brand new manner of doing technological know-how: via accomplishing computer-based experiments. ABM is acceptable to complicated structures embedded in common, social, and engineered contexts, throughout domain names that variety from engineering to ecology. An advent to Agent-Based Modeling deals a accomplished description of the center innovations, equipment, and purposes of ABM. Its hands-on strategy -- with enormous quantities of examples and workouts utilizing NetLogo -- allows readers to start developing versions instantly, despite event or discipline.The booklet first describes the character and intent of agent-based modeling, then provides the method for designing and development ABMs, and eventually discusses the right way to make the most of ABMs to respond to complicated questions. gains in each one bankruptcy comprise step by step courses to constructing versions in most cases textual content; textual content containers with additional info and ideas; end-of-chapter explorations; and references and lists of proper examining. there's additionally an accompanying site with all of the types and code.
