ACSEE: Antagonistic Crowd Simulation Model with Emotional Contagion and Evolutionary Game Theory [article]

Chaochao Li, Pei Lv, Dinesh Manocha, Hua Wang, Yafei Li, Bing Zhou,, Mingliang Xu
2019 arXiv   pre-print
We present an antagonistic crowd simulation model, ACSEE, which is integrated with antagonistic emotional contagion and evolutionary game theories.  ...  Our evolutionary game theoretic approach incorporates antagonistic emotional contagion through deterrent force, which is modelled by a mixture of emotional forces and physical forces defeating the opponents  ...  The enhanced evolutionary game theoretic approach is determined based on the deterrent forces of agents.  ...

Modeling and Analysis of Agent-Based Labor Market [chapter]

Jae-Min Yu, Sung-Bae Cho
2015 Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing  
This paper presents an agent-based model of labor market to investigate the relationship between company and worker.  ...  Unlike most of previous studies of labor market we apply a game theoretic approach to defining entities in labor market: companies and workers.  ...  Quek focused on the design and development of a spatial Evolutionary Multi-Agent Social(EMAS) network to investigate the underlying emergent macroscopic behavioral dynamics of civil violence.  ...

Youth Violence: Sources and Solutions in South Africa

Findings here were also used to test two substantial theoretical positions -'social role theory' (SRT) and 'sexual selection theory' (SST); the latter drawn from evolutionary theory.  ...  An example of an approach focusing on the child is the PATHS (Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies) model, which draws on neuro-cognitive models of development that focus on how language, behaviour  ...  Multisystemic interventions The most effective programmes for addressing youth violence are multisystemic and reflect an ecological approach to understanding social problems (Borduin et al., 1995) .  ...
