Agent-based modelling (1): Introduction to tools and concepts
Course Details and Schedule
This seven session course will help you learn how to design, build, test, debug, and experiment with agent-based models. Agent-based modelling (ABM) plays an important role in ecology, climate change, collective animal behaviour, economics, sociology, and many other sciences. The first part of every session will be presentations and exercises. The second part will be to support students building models of their choice.
In the first session you will be introduced to the basic concepts and software for making agent-based models.
