This page addresses applications of agent-based modeling in biology and medicine, divided into several subcategories. Please be aware of the separate page for ecology and of the extensive literature in Artificial Life at http://www.alife.org . Before editing, please read the policies and guidelines . Evo Evo is a software development framework that allows developers to build complex alife simulations. Using Evo, researchers can easily build systems of independent agents interacting with one another and with their environment. Evo implements biological operators such as genetic recombination and mutation to evolve the behavior of ...
the actions and interactions of autonomous agents (both individual or collective entities such as organizations or groups) with a view to assessing their effects on the system as a whole. It combines elements of game theory , complex systems , emergence , computational sociology , multi-agent systems , and evolutionary programming . Monte Carlo Methods are used to introduce randomness. The models simulate the simultaneous operations and interactions of multiple agents, in an attempt to re-create and predict the appearance of complex phenomena. The process is one of emergence from the lower (micro) level of systems to a higher ...
REVIEWS AND OPINIONS
Theory of Financial Risk and Derivative Pricing: From Statistical ...
This book is a supposedly new approach to financial modeling from the viewpoint of “statistical physics”. In fact, it is far from being that. First, there is little or no content really related to statistical physics in it. Apart from the fact that random variables and stochastic processes are also used in physics, the only feature in common between statistical physics and this book is some notational similarities and a lack of rigour which, justified in the case where it is supplemented by physical intuition, leads here to numerous mistakes and sloppy reasoning. The title, while promising, is quite arrogant: not ... market research, surveys and trends
Rajiv Sethi: A Case for Agent-Based Models in Economics
in economics. These are computational models in which a large numbers of interacting agents (individuals, households, firms, and regulators, for example) are endowed with behavioral rules that map environmental cues onto actions. Such models are capable of generating complex dynamics even with simple behavioral rules because the interaction structure can give rise to emergent properties that could not possibly be deduced by examining the rules themselves. As such, they are capable of providing microfoundations for macroeconomics in a manner that is both more plausible and more authentic than is the case with highly aggregative ... market research, surveys and trends

  Comparing large-scale computational approaches to epidemic modeling: agent-based versus structured metapopulation models In recent years large-scale computational models for the realistic simulation of epidemic outbreaks have been used with increased frequency. Methodologies adapt to the scale of interest and range from very detailed agent-based models to spatially-structured metapopulation models. One major issue thus concerns to what extent the geotemporal spreading pattern found by different modeling approaches may differ and depend on the different approximations and assumptions used. Methods: We provide for the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Computing a way out of poverty
In the Philippines, the Asian Development Bank and grid specialists are getting together to figure out best investment strategies for Asia’s poorest regions. One of the outcomes of the EUAsiaGrid Project , funded by the European Commission under Framework Program 7, has been to spark new grid-based collaborations in Southeast Asia. One example is the result of a meeting that occurred last October, when representatives from EUAsiaGrid partners went to the Asian Development Bank (ADB) Headquarters in Manila, The Phillipines, to explore ways to model the impact of poverty alleviation investments that ADB makes. In the past, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Agent-Based Computational Economics (Tesfatsion)
is the computational study of economic processes modeled as dynamic systems of interacting agents. Here "agent" refers broadly to a bundle of data and behavioral methods representing an entity constituting part of a computationally constructed world. Examples of possible agents include individuals (e.g. consumers, producers), social groupings (e.g. families, firms, communities, government agencies), institutions (e.g. markets, regulatory systems), biological entities (e.g. crops, livestock, forests), and physical entities (e.g. infrastructure, weather, and geographical regions). Thus, agents can range from ...

Background: I am a researcher in engineering with a wide scope. Mostly, I perform simulations of (mechanical) systems, behavior of which are governed by differential equations. I also develop models for biology/genetics (but not bioinformatics type stuff). I use Fortran (I know) for programming, write results to output file(s) and read them using Excel or Tecplot to visualize. I also use Matlab and Mathematica for quick models. It gets pretty cumbersome after a while, especially when you want to quickly figure out behavior change (of a phenomenon) depending on the input variables. So I thought maybe it is time for me to learn ...

The time required to develop simulation models varies widely from project to project. At the highest level, I see two categories of simulation models in my organization: (1) Simple systems & questions that could be answered with other tools like Excel calculations, statistical analysis, or queuing theory. The simulation package is just used as a quick calculator of a relatively simple system. There is not extensive thought required as to how to abstract & model the system. The modeler delivers recommendations, as opposed to a simulation based software tool for others to use. (2) Complex systems & questions where simulation ...
