AgentBased and IndividualBased Modeling: A Practical IntroductionPrinceton University Press, 2012  329 páginas Agentbased modeling is a new technique for understanding how the dynamics of biological, social, and other complex systems arise from the characteristics and behaviors of the agents making up these systems. This innovative textbook gives students and scientists the skills to design, implement, and analyze agentbased models. It starts with the fundamentals of modeling and provides an introduction to NetLogo, an easytouse, free, and powerful software platform. Nine chapters then each introduce an important modeling concept and show how to implement it using NetLogo. The book goes on to present strategies for finding the right level of model complexity and developing theory for agent behavior, and for analyzing and learning from models. AgentBased and IndividualBased Modeling features concise and accessible text, numerous examples, and exercises using small but scientific models. The emphasis throughout is on analysissuch as software testing, theory development, robustness analysis, and understanding full modelsand on design issues like optimizing model structure and finding good parameter values.
