AgentBased and IndividualBased Modeling: A Practical Introduction, Second EditionPrinceton University Press, 26 de mar. de 2019  360 páginas The essential textbook on agentbased modeling—now fully updated and expanded AgentBased and IndividualBased Modeling has become the standard textbook on the subject for classroom use and selfinstruction. Drawing on the latest version of NetLogo and fully updated with new examples, exercises, and an enhanced text for easier comprehension, this is the essential resource for anyone seeking to understand how the dynamics of biological, social, and other complex systems arise from the characteristics of the agents that make up these systems. Steven Railsback and Volker Grimm lead students stepwise through the processes of designing, programming, documenting, and doing scientific research with agentbased models, focusing on the adaptive behaviors that make these models necessary. They cover the fundamentals of modeling and model analysis, introduce key modeling concepts, and demonstrate how to implement them using NetLogo. They also address patternoriented modeling, an invaluable strategy for modeling realworld problems and developing theory. This accessible and authoritative book focuses on modeling as a tool for understanding real complex systems. It explains how to pose a specific question, use observations from actual systems to design models, write and test software, and more.
