Agent-based Modeling: The Right Mathematics for the Social Sciences?
The Elgar Companion to Recent Economic Methodology
This study provides a basic introduction to agent-based modeling (ABM) as a powerful blend of classical and constructive mathematics, with a primary focus on its applicability for social science research. The typical goals of ABM social science researchers are discussed along with the culture-dish nature of their computer experiments. The applicability of ABM for science more generally is also considered, with special attention to physics. Finally, two distinct types of ABM applications aredoi:10.4337/9780857938077.00018 fatcat:5hhxyflz4ba7zgozwrfrc4re7y
