Computational Model Library

This model is based on Joshua Epstein’s (2001) model on development of thoughtless conformity in an artificial society of agents.

AgentEx aims to advance understanding of group processes for sustainable management of a common pool resource (CPR). By supporting the development and test explanations of cooperation and sustainable exploitation.
