Contents Agent-Based Computational Modelling: An Introduction; Agent-Based Modelling -- A Methodology for the Analysis of Qualitative Development Processes; On the Analysis of Asymmetric Directed Communication Structures in Electronic Election Markets; The Role of Assortative Mating on Population Growth in Contemporary Developed Societies; An Agent-Based Simulation Model of Age-at-Marriage Norms; The Strength of Social Interactions and Obesity among Women; Agent-Based Models in Ecology: Patterns and Alternative Theories of Adaptive Behaviour.
Summary The present book describes the methodology to set up agent-based models and to study emerging patterns in complex adaptive systems resulting from multi-agent interaction. It offers the application of agent-based models in demography, social and economic sciences and environmental sciences. Examples include population dynamics, evolution of social norms, communication structures, patterns in eco-systems and socio-biology, natural resource management, spread of diseases and development processes. It presents and combines different approaches how to implement agent-based computational models and.
