Agent-based modelers in the field of marketing research have paid little attention to validation issues. This paper provides a definition of validation relevant for this community of modelers. On the basis of a history-friendly model for simulation calibration (1999). 'History-friendly' models of industry evolution: the computer industry. Industrial and(More)
Validation issues have received little attention by agent-based modelers in marketing research. In this paper we provide a definition of validation relevant for this community of modelers. Using the foundation of a history-friendly model for simulation calibration (Malerba, et al., 1999), we demonstrate how conjoint analyses can be used to instantiate and(More)
The finite element method has proven to be versatile in the analysis of various electromagnetic phenomena. In this paper, we investigate the utility of the finite element method for guiding the design of plasma reactors. These reactors are used for processing integrated circuit substrates. The design of such reactors is based on the complex interactions(More)
