Spatial model of the noisy Prisoner's Dilemma with reward shift

Matus Halas | Published Thursday, March 05, 2015 | Last modified Tuesday, May 29, 2018

Interactions of players embedded in a closed square lattice are determined by distance and overall gains and they lead to shifts of reward payoff between temptation and punishment. A new winner balancing against threats is ultimately discovered.

WaterScape

Erin Bohensky | Published Monday, February 06, 2012 | Last modified Saturday, April 27, 2013

The WaterScape is an agent-based model of the South African water sector. This version of the model focuses on potential barriers to learning in water management that arise from interactions between human perceptions and social-ecological system conditions.

Peer reviewed Swidden Farming Version 2.0

C Michael Barton | Published Wednesday, June 12, 2013 | Last modified Wednesday, September 03, 2014

Model of shifting cultivation. All parameters can be controlled by the user or the model can be run in adaptive mode, in which agents innovate and select parameters.

Variations on the Ethnocentrism Model of Hammond and Axelrod

Fredrik Jansson | Published Saturday, November 10, 2012 | Last modified Saturday, April 27, 2013

Agents co-operate or defect towards other agents in a prisoner’s dilemma, with strategy choice depending on whether agents share tags or are kin in different social structures.

Will it spread or not? The effects of social influences and network topology on innovation diffusion

Sebastiano Delre | Published Monday, October 24, 2011 | Last modified Saturday, April 27, 2013

This models simulates innovation diffusion curves and it tests the effects of the degree and the direction of social influences. This model replicates, extends and departs from classical percolation models.

The role of spatial foresight in models of hominin dispersal

Colin Wren | Published Monday, February 24, 2014 | Last modified Monday, July 14, 2014

The natural selection of foresight, an accuracy at assess the environment, under degrees of environmental heterogeneity. The model is designed to connect local scale mobility, from foraging, with the global scale phenomenon of population dispersal.

NetCommons

Francis Tseng | Published Wednesday, May 18, 2011 | Last modified Saturday, April 27, 2013

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.

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.

Model to assess factors that influence local communities compliance with protected areas policies

Gustavo Andrade | Published Monday, November 21, 2011 | Last modified Saturday, April 27, 2013

We built a model using R,polr package, to assess 55 published case studies from developing countries to determine what factors influence the level of compliance of local communities with protected area regulations.

A Computational Model of Workers Protest

Jae-Woo Kim | Published Friday, May 13, 2011 | Last modified Saturday, April 27, 2013

We present an agent-based model of worker protest informed by Epstein (2002). Workers have varying degrees of grievance depending on the difference between their wage and the average of their neighbors. They protest with probabilities proportional to grievance, but are inhibited by the risk of being arrested – which is determined by the ratio of coercive agents to probable rebels in the local area. We explore the effect of similarity perception on the dynamics of collective behavior. If […]
