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.

A modified model of breeding synchrony in colonial birds

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.

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

ABM mobility

The MOBILITY model analyzes how agents’ mobility affects the performance of social-ecological systems in different landscape configurations.

Model of Context Switching with Segregation

Davide Nunes | Published Thu Aug 2 21:15:49 2012 | Last modified Sat Apr 27 20:18:39 2013

In the context switching model, a society of agents embedded in multiple social relations, engages in a simple abstract game: the consensus game. Each agent has to choose towards one of two possible choices which are basically arbitrary. The objective of the game is to reach a global consensus, but the particular choice that gets collectively selected is irrelevant.

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.

Social Nets Emergence Model

This model simulates the interactions and dynamic trust changes between people which results in social group emergence and evolution.
