A-KinGDom: A Kinship, Grooming and Dominance Model for Primate Societies (version 1.1.0)

Based on previous models (Hemelrijk 1998; Puga-González, Hildenbrant & Hemelrijk 2009), we have developed an agent-based model and software, called A-KinGDom, which allows us to simulate the emergence of the social structure in a group of non-human primates. The model includes dominance and affiliative interactions which allow us to define four different attack and affiliative strategies. The A-KinGDom software reads initial parameters from a text file, performs the simulations and saves the agents’ information and the main measures of social structure of non-human primates in three text files. Therefore, the results obtained from simulations can be compared with empirical observations of groups of primates
