Download Agent-Based Modeling of Sustainable Behaviors by Amparo Alonso-Betanzos, Noelia Sánchez-Maroño, Oscar PDF

By Amparo Alonso-Betanzos, Noelia Sánchez-Maroño, Oscar Fontenla-Romero, J. Gary Polhill, Tony Craig, Javier Bajo, Juan Manuel Corchado

Using the O.D.D. (Overview, layout suggestions, element) protocol, this identify explores the position of agent-based modeling in predicting the feasibility of varied methods to sustainability. The chapters integrated during this quantity include actual case stories to demonstrate the application of agent-based modeling and complexity idea in studying a route to extra effective and sustainable life. the subjects coated inside contain: families' attitudes towards recycling, designing selection bushes for representing sustainable behaviors, negotiation-based parking allocation, auction-based site visitors sign keep watch over, and others.

This number of papers could be of curiosity to social scientists who desire to examine extra approximately agent-based modeling in addition to specialists within the box of agent-based modeling.

Combined relaxation methods for variational inequalities

A textual content utilizing a brand new common method of development answer tools for variational inequalities, in keeping with combining editing, and generalizing principles contained in numerous rest equipment. the hot strategy, termed mixed rest, is defined and validated. Softcover.

Simulating Social Complexity: A Handbook

Social structures are one of the most intricate identified. This poses specific difficulties if you desire to comprehend them. The complexity frequently makes analytic techniques infeasible and typical language methods insufficient for touching on complex reason and impact. besides the fact that, person- and agent-based computational methods carry out the potential of new and deeper realizing of such structures.

The Complexity of Social Norms

This booklet explores the view that normative behaviour is a part of a posh of social mechanisms, strategies and narratives which are regularly moving. From this attitude, norms usually are not one of those self-contained social item or truth, yet fairly an interaction of many stuff that we label as norms once we ‘take a picture’ of them at a selected rapid.

Sunspots and Non-Linear Dynamics: Essays in Honor of Jean-Michel Grandmont

This booklet provides the cutting-edge in non-linear dynamics and sunspots. those issues were the middle of a world convention on instability and public regulations in a globalized global, prepared at Aix-Marseille tuition of Economics and GREQAM in honor of Jean-Michel Grandmont. He has made major contributions on normal equilibrium concept, financial thought, studying, aggregation, non-linear dynamics and sunspots.

5 decision tree algorithm [28]. Although Sánchez-Maroño et al. G. Polhill et al. how social network characteristics affect the behaviour of the model. Heterogeneity of agents in this model is determined by their attributes and how these affect the route taken through the decision trees. 3)). 6: When you commute or drive for work purposes, how often do you drive in an energy efficient way (looking ahead and anticipating on traffic and brake and accelerate quietly and change to a higher gear as soon as possible)?

The agents are then connected in a workplace social network implementing three relationship types: subordinate, co-worker and supervisor. Supervisor and subordinate relationships are implemented through the directed manager link network, in which A is a subordinate of B iff B is a supervisor of A. The workplace management hierarchy is determined by randomly selecting a single agent to be the chief executive of the artificial institution, assigning that agent a level of 1, setting a global variable max-level to 1, and then constructing the organogram as follows: 1.

Both demand sources activate memorized goals and norms— directly by triggered activation or indirectly by spreading of activation—that are expected to bring pleasure by satisfying these demands. Goals may also be memorized with expected displeasure, if an (activated) goal would prevent the fulfillment of a demand or if a goal’s object is expected to bring harm. Beside demands, affordances are the second source of data activation. They activate memories that are similar to the current external world and—indirectly via spreading of activation—norms that are valid for the current external situation.
