HIV/AIDS is a key concern in South Africa. However, its impact cannot be examined in isolation of other stresses, such as food insecurity, high climate variability, market fluctuations, and poor governance. In this paper, we present an agent-based simulation model of the social impacts of HIV/AIDS in villages in the Vhembe district, Limpopo Province, South(More)
In this paper, the implications of applying the idea of gift exchange mechanism, inspired from Pierre Bourdieu's sociological theories, into a market-based multiagent system are explored. Our work is directed in the continuation of investigations by Knabe (2002), who addressed the formation of different organizations structures between providers in a(More)
In this paper, we present an agent-based simulation model of the social impacts of HIV/AIDS in villages in the Sekhukhune district of the Limpopo province in South Africa. AIDS is a major concern in South Africa, not just in terms of disease spread but also in term of its impact on society and economic development. The impact of the disease cannot however(More)
We have developed an agent-based simulation model based on a real case study in the Sekhukhune district of the Limpopo province in South Africa. The work reported here is part of an ongoing project that deals with social complexity emerging from bottom-up as a result of individuals' interaction. We model these interactions at the individual and the(More)
This paper describes the environmental consequences of agricultural adaptation on eutrophication of the nearby ecological network for a study area in the Netherlands. More specifically, we explored (i) likely responses of farmers to changes in climate, technology, policy, and markets; (ii) subsequent changes in nitrogen (N) emissions in responses to farmer(More)
In many computational social simulation models only cursory reference to the foundations of the agent cognition used is made and computational expenses let many modellers chose simplistic agent cognition architectures. Both choices run counter to expectations framed by scholars active in the domain of rich cognitive modelling that see agent reasoning as(More)
Both global change and policy reform will affect the implementation of the National Ecological Network (NEN) in the Netherlands. Global change refers to a combination of changing groundwater tables arising from climate change and improved economic prospects for farming. Policy reform refers to the abolition of an intermediary organization that organizes(More)
