This tutorial demonstrates the use of agent-based simulation (ABS) in modeling emergent behaviors. We first introduce key concepts of ABS by using two simple examples: the Game of Life and the Boids models. We illustrate agent-based modeling issues and simulation of emergent behaviors by using examples in social networks, auction-type markets, emergency evacuation, crowd behavior under normal situations, biology, material science, chemistry, and archaeology. Finally, we discuss the relationship… CONTINUE READING
