Summary:
Agent-based modeling is a flexible and intuitive approach that is close to both data and theories, which gives it a special position in the majority of scientific communities. Agent models are as much tools of understanding, exploration and adaptation as they are media for interdisciplinary exchange. It is in this kind of framework that this book is situated, beginning with agent-based modeling of spatialized phenomena with a methodological and practical orientation. Through a governing example, taking inspiration from a real problem in epidemiology, this book proposes, with pedagogy and economy, a guide to good practices of agent modeling. The reader will thus be able to understand and put the modeling into practice and acquire a certain amount of autonomy. Featuring the following well-known techniques and tools: Modeling, such as UML, Simulation, such as the NetLogo platform, Exploration methods, Adaptation using participative simulation

What is the Role of Intelligent Technologies in the Next Generation of Robots ? This monograph gives answers to this question and presents emergent trends of Intelligent Systems and Robotics. After an introductory chapter celebrating 70 year of publishing the McCulloch Pitts model the book consists of the 2 parts „Robotics“ and „Intelligent Systems“. The aim of the book is to contribute to shift conventional robotics in which the robots perform repetitive, pre-programmed tasks to its intelligent form, where robots possess new cognitive

A ground-up approach to explaining dynamic spatialmodelling for an interdisciplinary audience. Across broad areas of the environmental and social sciences,simulation models are an important way to study systemsinaccessible to scientific experimental and observational methods,and also an essential complement to those more conventionalapproaches. The contemporary research literature is teemingwith abstract simulation models whose presentation ismathematically demanding and requires a high level of knowledge ofquantitative and computational methods and approaches. Furthermore, simulation models designed to represent specificsystems and phenomena are

GET THIS BOOKAgent-based Modeling and Simulation in Archaeology

Archaeology has been historically reluctant to embrace the subject of agent-based simulation, since it was seen as being used to "re-enact" and "visualize" possible scenarios for a wider (generally non-scientific) audience, based on scarce and fuzzy data. Furthermore, modeling "in exact terms" and programming as a means for producing agent-based simulations were simply beyond the field of the social sciences. This situation has changed quite drastically with the advent of the internet age: Data, it seems, is now ubiquitous. Researchers

New powerful technologies, such as geographic information systems (GIS), have been evolving and are quickly becoming part of a worldwide emergent digital infrastructure. Spatial analysis is becoming more important than ever because enormous volumes of spatial data are available from different sources, such as social media and mobile phones. When locational information is provided, spatial analysis researchers can use it to calculate statistical and mathematical relationships through time and space. This book aims to demonstrate how computer methods of spatial

Individual-based models are an exciting and widely used new tool for ecology. These computational models allow scientists to explore the mechanisms through which population and ecosystem ecology arises from how individuals interact with each other and their environment. This book provides the first in-depth treatment of individual-based modeling and its use to develop theoretical understanding of how ecological systems work, an approach the authors call "individual-based ecology." Grimm and Railsback start with a general primer on modeling: how to design
