By Alison J. Heppenstall, Andrew T. Crooks, Linda M. See, Michael Batty

This specific publication brings jointly a complete set of papers at the heritage, conception, technical matters and purposes of agent-based modelling (ABM) inside of geographical platforms. This number of papers is a useful reference element for the skilled agent-based modeller in addition these new to the realm. particular geographical concerns akin to dealing with scale and house are handled in addition to functional recommendation from best specialists approximately designing and developing ABMs, dealing with complexity, visualising and validating version outputs. With contributions from the various world’s major learn associations, the most recent utilized learn (micro and macro functions) from worldwide exemplify what will be accomplished in geographical context.

This publication is correct to researchers, postgraduate and complicated undergraduate scholars, and execs within the components of quantitative geography, spatial research, spatial modelling, social simulation modelling and geographical details sciences.

Sample text

There are no models (to the authors knowledge, that is) where populations are divided into movers and stayers and these components dealt with in comparative static terms as different specifications of the equilibrium. Most extensions to dynamics have thus been ad hoc and in fact, there have been few developments of nonlinear dynamics of the kind described earlier involving catastrophes and bifurcations 46 M. Batty embedded directly into the structure of these models. There are examples where static models are embedded into dynamic frameworks but these are largely for pedagogic use and have never been fitted to real systems (see Dearden and Wilson 2012, this volume).

Agents as objects in the population are defined individually as k but are made specific in terms of the locations where they exist i at time t . In fact agents may not physically move or indeed in non-spatial models, they may not even be defined in terms of location. If the model is simply one of examining relations between agents at a cross section in time, then such relations might solely be defined in terms of say N k and N l , the relation between them defining a link in a social network N k = f ( N k , N ).

The sheer breadth of these models is impressive, spanning all the way from microscopic simulation of individual vehicles to the representation of aggregate network conditions in a region or urban area. 1, allows us to propose some useful conclusions about the technique of MSM. Firstly, flexible aggregation is a major strength of this approach. g. how much benefit will the UK Exchequer derive from an increase in taxes, and what will be the distributional consequences of this change across social groups?
