Using the O.D.D. (Overview, layout recommendations, element) protocol, this name explores the function of agent-based modeling in predicting the feasibility of varied methods to sustainability. The chapters included during this quantity include genuine case experiences to demonstrate the application of agent-based modeling and complexity idea in researching a route to extra effective and sustainable existence. the themes coated inside of contain: families' attitudes towards recycling, designing choice timber for representing sustainable behaviors, negotiation-based parking allocation, auction-based site visitors sign keep watch over, and others.

This choice of papers might be of curiosity to social scientists who desire to examine extra approximately agent-based modeling in addition to specialists within the box of agent-based modeling.

Developments on Experimental Economics: New Approaches to Solving Real-world Problems

This quantity on experimental economics deals either new learn grounds and a bird’s eye view at the box. within the first half, prime experimental economists, between them Vernon S. Smith and Daniel Friedman, supply inspiring insights into their view at the basic improvement of this box. within the moment half, chosen brief papers by way of researchers from quite a few disciplines current new principles and ideas to fixing difficulties within the actual international.

Modern Optimization Modelling Techniques

The idea of optimization, understood in a vast feel, is the root of recent utilized arithmetic, protecting a wide spectrum of themes from theoretical issues (structure, balance) to utilized operational study and engineering functions. The compiled fabric of this booklet places on exhibit this versatility, through showing the 3 parallel and complementary parts of optimization: idea, algorithms, and functional difficulties.

Operations Research Problems: Statements and Solutions

The target of this ebook is to supply a helpful compendium of difficulties as a reference for undergraduate and graduate scholars, college, researchers and practitioners of operations learn and administration technology. those difficulties can function a foundation for the improvement or learn of assignments and tests.

For each run, the model records in the last time step the mean and variance of the distribution of difference between each non-cloned agent’s final and initial response to each behaviour. Specifically, for each behaviour, the NetLogo expressions for the means and variances are computed as shown in (1) and (2), mean Œbehaviour variance Œbehaviour initial-behaviour  of workers initial-behaviour  of workers (1) (2) where behaviour and initial-behaviour are substituted for a lookup in the agent’s data table for the corresponding behaviour variables at the end and beginning of the run respectively; and workers is the set of interacting agents.

However, the guiding principle is that of a satisficing, not an optimizing agent (cf. [30]). Overall, the evaluation process results in determining the most relevant goal for the current internal and external conditions. 3 Applying the SiMA-C Model in Social Media Prompting of Environmental-Friendly Behavior The applicability of using the SiMA-C model to examine the mechanisms and impact factors of environmental-friendly behavior is explored in the CogMAS (Cognitive Multi-Agent System Supporting Marketing Strategies of EnvironmentalFriendly Energy Products) project [25].
