Agent-based computing is a diverse research domain concerned with the building of intelligent software based on the concept of “agents”. In this paper, we use Scientometric analysis to analyze all sub-domains of agent-based computing. Our data consists of 1,064 journal articles indexed in the ISI web of knowledge published during a 20 year period: 1990–2010. These were retrieved using a topic search with various keywords commonly used in sub-domains of agent-based computing. In our proposed…

TLDR
This report attempts to clarify the concept of ABMS and summarize variant paradigms that have been studied in the transportation field by distinguishing similarities of differences of the specified problems, model capabilities, strengths and weaknesses ofABMS scoped in different applications, and through a comprehensive review of AB MS approaches seen in transportation studies.
Towards a novel unified framework for developing formal, network and validated agent-based simulation models of complex adaptive systems
TLDR
This thesis proposes first steps towards a unified framework using a combination of agent-based and complex network-based modeling approaches and guidelines formulated in the form of a set of four levels of usage, which allow multidisciplinary researchers to adopt a suitable framework level on the basis of available data types, their research study objectives and expected outcomes, thus allowing them to better plan and conduct their respective re-search case studies.

Agent-based software engineering
TLDR
The paper considers the problem of building a multi-agent system as a software engineering enterprise and discusses three issues: how agents might be specified; how these specifications might be refined or otherwise transformed into efficient implementations: and how implemented agents and multi- agent systems might subsequently be verified, to show that they are correct with respect to their specifications.
