GC6-1 - Structure of agent-based models

You are currently viewing an archived version of Topic Agent-based Modeling. If updates or revisions have been published you can find them at Agent-based Modeling.

Learning Objectives: 
  • Compare and contrast agent-based models and cellular automata as approaches for modeling spatial processes
  • Describe how agent-based models use object-oriented programming constructs of inheritance and encapsulation to represent the behavior of heterogeneous and interactive and adaptive actors
