42828 Introduction to Agent Based Modelling

Anti-requisite(s): 42085 Modelling for Complex Systems


Complex systems abound. Their emergent characteristics result from an interaction of the system's elements. Just what emergent characteristics will result from such interactions is very difficult, if not impossible, to predict for complex systems. Simulation modelling is one way to explore complex systems. In this subject, students learn how to construct and modify system models using Agent Based Modelling (ABM) or Agent Based Modelling and Simulation (ABMS).
