Computational Model Library

This multi-model (i.e. a model composed of interacting submodels) is a multi-level representation of a collective motion phenomenon. It was designed to study the impact of the mutual influences between individuals and groups in collective motion.

Peer reviewed An Agent-Based Model of Status Construction in Task Focused Groups

André Grow Andreas Flache Rafael Wittek | Published Sun May 18 12:25:58 2014 | Last modified Tue Jun 16 18:27:23 2015

The model simulates interactions in small, task focused groups that might lead to the emergence of status beliefs among group members.

Setting the Stage for Inequality

Timothy Dennehy | Published Mon Mar 11 21:52:57 2013 | Last modified Sat Apr 27 20:18:45 2013

How can a strictly egalitarian social system give way to a stratified society if all of its members punish each other for any type of selfish behavior? This model examines the role of prestige bias in constant and variable environments on the development of hierarchies of wealth.

ForagerNet3_Demography_V2

Andrew White | Published Thu Feb 13 16:06:26 2014

ForagerNet3_Demography_V2 is a non-spatial ABM for exploring hunter-gatherer demography. This version (developed from FN3D_V1) contains code for calculating the ratio of old to young adults (the “OY ratio”) in the living and dead populations.

A Model of Iterated Ultimatum game

Andrea Scalco | Published Tue Feb 24 16:08:20 2015 | Last modified Mon Mar 9 16:13:23 2015

The simulation generates two kinds of agents, whose proposals are generated accordingly to their selfish or selfless behaviour. Then, agents compete in order to increase their portfolio playing the ultimatum game with a random-stranger matching.

Human mate choice is a complex system

Paul Smaldino Jeffrey C Schank | Published Fri Feb 8 19:17:22 2013 | Last modified Sat Apr 27 20:18:34 2013

A general model of human mate choice in which agents are localized in space, interact with close neighbors, and tend to range either near or far. At the individual level, our model uses two oft-used but incompletely understood decision rules: one based on preferences for similar partners, the other for maximally attractive partners.

Communication and social change in space and time

Sebastian Kluesener Francesco Scalone Martin Dribe | Published Tue May 17 10:30:29 2016 | Last modified Fri Oct 13 16:24:43 2017

This agent-based model simulates the diffusion of a social change process stratified by social class in space and time which is solely driven social and spatial variation in communication links.

Landscape connectivity and predator–prey population dynamics

Jacopo Baggio | Published Thu Nov 10 19:35:38 2011 | Last modified Sat Apr 27 20:18:37 2013

A simple model to assess the effect of connectivity on interacting species (i.e. predator-prey type)

Positive feedback can lead to “trapping” in local optima. Adding a simple negative feedback effect, based on ant behaviour, prevents this trapping

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.
