A modified model of breeding synchrony in colonial birds

James Millington | Published Tue Jun 26 14:20:05 2012 | Last modified Sat Apr 27 20:18:19 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.

Gunpowder battle tactics

This model simulates the dynamics of eighteenth-century infantry battle tactics. The goal is to explore the effect of different tactics and individual traits in the dynamics of the combat.

Adoption as a social marker

Paul Smaldino | Published Mon Oct 17 13:00:14 2016

A model of innovation diffusion in a structured population with two groups who are averse to adopting a produce popular with the outgroup.

The model is an experimental ground to study the impact of network structure on diffusion. It allows to construct a social network that already has some measurable level of homophily, and simulate a diffusion process over this social network.

Exploring social psychology theory for modelling farmer decision-making

James Millington | Published Tue Sep 18 16:16:25 2012 | Last modified Sat Apr 27 20:18:32 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

Universal Darwinism in Dutch Greenhouses

Julia Kasmire | Published Wed May 9 13:40:57 2012 | Last modified Sat Apr 27 20:18:51 2013

An ABM, derived from a case study and a series of surveys with greenhouse growers in the Westland, Netherlands. Experiments using this model showshow that the greenhouse horticulture industry displays diversity, adaptive complexity and an uneven distribution, which all suggest that the industry is an evolving system.

This model WealthDistribRes can be used to study the distribution of wealth in function of using a combination of resources classified in two renewable and nonrenewable.

Agent-based model of sexual partnership

Andrea Knittel | Published Mon Dec 5 04:02:51 2011 | Last modified Sat Apr 27 20:18:21 2013

In this model agents meet, evaluate one another, decide whether or not to date, if and when to become sexual partners, and when to break up.

9 Maturity levels in Empirical Validation - An innovation diffusion example

Martin Rixin | Published Wed Oct 19 13:42:28 2011 | Last modified Sat Apr 27 20:18:17 2013

Several taxonomies for empirical validation have been published. Our model integrates different methods to calibrate an innovation diffusion model, ranging from simple randomized input validation to complex calibration with the use of microdata.
