Feedback Loop Example: Vegetation Patch Growth

James Millington | Published Thursday, December 20, 2012 | Last modified Saturday, April 27, 2013

This model illustrates a positive ‘growth’ feedback loop in which the areal extent of an entity increases through time.

A Multi-Agent Simulation Approach to Farmland Auction Markets

James Nolan | Published Wednesday, June 22, 2011 | Last modified Saturday, April 27, 2013

This model explores the effects of agent interaction, information feedback, and adaptive learning in repeated auctions for farmland. It gathers information for three types of sealed-bid auctions, and one English auction and compares the auctions on the basis of several measures, including efficiency, price information revelation, and ability to handle repeated bidding and agent learning.

The simulation model conducts fine-grained population projection by specifying life course dynamics of individuals and couples by means of traditional demographic microsimulation and by using agent-based modeling for mate matching.

Feedback Loop Example: Wildland Fire Spread

James Millington | Published Friday, December 21, 2012 | Last modified Saturday, April 27, 2013

This model is a replication of that described by Peterson (2002) and illustrates the ‘spread’ feedback loop type described in Millington (2013).

A modified model of breeding synchrony in colonial birds

James Millington | Published Tuesday, June 26, 2012 | Last modified Saturday, April 27, 2013

This generic individual-based model of a bird colony shows how the influence neighbour’s stress levels synchronize the laying date of neighbours and also of large colonies. The model has been used to demonstrate how this form of simulation model can be recognised as being ‘event-driven’, retaining a history in the patterns produced via simulated events and interactions.

Exploring social psychology theory for modelling farmer decision-making

James Millington | Published Tuesday, September 18, 2012 | Last modified Saturday, April 27, 2013

To investigate the potential of using Social Psychology Theory in ABMs of natural resource use and show proof of concept, we present an exemplary agent-based modelling framework that explicitly represents multiple and hierarchical agent self-concepts

Aspiration, Attainment and Success: An agent-based model of distance-based school allocation

James Millington | Published Friday, November 02, 2012 | Last modified Friday, July 03, 2015

The purpose of this model is to investigate mechanisms driving the geography of educational inequality and the consequences of these mechanisms for individuals with varying attributes and mobility.

Peer reviewed Umwelten Ants

Kit Martin | Published Thursday, January 15, 2015 | Last modified Thursday, August 27, 2015

Simulates impacts of ants killing colony mates when in conflict with another nest. The murder rate is adjustable, and the environmental change is variable. The colonies employ social learning so knowledge diffusion proceeds if interactions occur.
