This model investigates the link between prescribed growth in body size, population dynamics and density dependence through population feedback on available resources.

Peer reviewed Hohokam Trade Networks Model

Joshua Watts | Published Sun Oct 26 01:07:30 2014

The Hohokam Trade Networks Model focuses on key features of the Hohokam economy to explore how differences in trade network topologies may show up in the archaeological record. The model is set in the Phoenix Basin of central Arizona, AD 200-1450.

Patagonia PSMED is an agent-based model designed to study a simple case of Evolution of Ethnic Differentiation. It replicates how can hunter-gatherer societies evolve and built cultural identities as a consequence of the way they interacted.

NetCommons

NetCommons simulates a social dilemma process in case of step-level public goods. Is possible to generate (or load from DL format) any different networks, to change initial parameters, to replicate a number of experimental situations, and to obtain a event history database in CSV format with information about the context of each agents’ decision, the individual behavior and the aggregate outcomes.

The Pampas Model is an Agent-Based Model intended to explore the dynamics of structural and land use changes in agricultural systems of the Argentine Pampas in response to climatic, technological economic, and political drivers.

Feedback Loop Example: Wildland Fire Spread

James Millington | Published Fri Dec 21 12:26:52 2012 | Last modified Sat Apr 27 20:18:32 2013

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

Gunpowder battle tactics

Xavier Rubio-Campillo Jose María Cela Francesc Xavier Hernàndez | Published Wed Nov 20 13:14:07 2013 | Last modified Tue Nov 26 11:34:21 2013

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.

WeDiG Sim

Reza Shamsaee | Published Mon May 14 13:07:12 2012 | Last modified Sat Apr 27 20:18:53 2013

WeDiG Sim- Weighted Directed Graph Simulator - is an open source application that serves to simulate complex systems. WeDiG Sim reflects the behaviors of those complex systems that put stress on scale-free, weightedness, and directedness. It has been implemented based on “WeDiG model” that is newly presented in this domain. The WeDiG model can be seen as a generalized version of “Barabási-Albert (BA) model”. WeDiG not only deals with weighed directed systems, but also it can handle the […]

A model of groundwater usage by farmers in the Upper Guadiana, Spain

Georg Holtz | Published Thu Jun 30 14:25:25 2011 | Last modified Sat Apr 27 20:18:17 2013

An agent-based model to investigate the history of irrigated agriculture in the Upper Guadiana Basin, Spain, in order to learn about the influence of farmers’ characteristics (inter alia profit orientation, risk aversion, skills, available labour force and farm size) on land-use change and associated groundwater over-use in this region.

A haystack-style model of group selection to capture the essential features of colony foundation for queens of the ant based on observation of the ant Pogonomyrmex californicus.
