Complex Systems usually consist of a large number of interacting components; therefore multi-agent models can play a valuable role in exploring and simulating their dynamic behavior. In the first part of this paper we address some conceptual issues associated with designing agent-based models for complex systems. In the second part we investigate the dynamics of a “minimalistic” multi-agent system, where spatially distributed agents communicate via a spatiotemporal multicomponent “communication… CONTINUE READING
