Agent-Based Modeling: Understanding Our Creations

  title={Agent-Based Modeling: Understanding Our Creations},
  author={R. Axtell and J. Epstein},
The defining feature of agent-based models is precisely that fundamental social structures emerge from the interaction of individual agents. The shorthand for this is that the collective structures grow “from the bottom up.” As a result of research pioneered at SFI, there now exists an impressive— and rapidly growing—population of agent-based models, of coral reefs, ant colonies, bird flocks, forest fires, political empires, ecosystems, technological evolutions, and traffic patterns. In the… Expand
