Can we rely on a model to understand social phenomena? A reliable model is a necessary step to simulate social systems, and reliability should be discussed through all levels of modeling. There are three levels of modeling: conceptual, specification and computational. A conceptual level describes the model at a high level. Since reliability is an important aspect of modeling, it should be addressed first on a conceptual level. This paper proposes a theoretical foundation of a unified approach… CONTINUE READING
