ISBN-13: 9789400749337

Determination makers in huge scale interconnected community platforms require simulation types for selection help. The behaviour of those platforms relies on many actors, located in a dynamic, multi-actor, multi-objective and multi-level surroundings. How can such structures be modelled and the way can the socio-technical complexity be captured? Agent-based modelling is a confirmed method of deal with this problem. This booklet presents a realistic creation to agent-based modelling of socio-technical platforms, in line with a strategy that has been constructed at TU Delft and which has been deployed in a number of case reviews. The e-book includes components: the 1st provides the history, concept and method in addition to sensible directions and methods for development versions. within the moment half this conception is utilized to a couple of case stories, the place for every version the improvement steps are offered generally, getting ready the reader for growing personal versions.
