In this paper we aim to examine emergent properties of agent-based models by using evolutionary algorithms. Taking the model of flocking boids as an example, we study and try to understand how the pressure of natural selection towards strategic behavior can result in emergent behavior. Furthermore we investigate how an increase of complexity in the model(More)
Cellular automata (CA) models have been for several years, employed to describe urban phenomena like growth of human settlements, changes in land use and, more recently, dispersion of air pollutants. We propose to adapt CA to study the dispersion of anthropogenic heat emissions on the micro scale. Three dimensional cubic CA with a constant cell size of 0.15(More)
We present CheSS, the "Chebyshev Sparse Solvers" library, which has been designed to solve typical problems arising in large-scale electronic structure calculations using localized basis sets. The library is based on a flexible and efficient expansion in terms of Chebyshev polynomials and presently features the calculation of the density matrix, the(More)
This paper focuses on parameter search for multi-agent based models using evolutionary algorithms. Large numbers and variable dimensions of parameters require an optimization method which can efficiently handle a high dimensional search space. We are proposing the use of complexification as it emulates the natural way of evolution by starting with a small(More)
