Agent Based Modelling

The short course provides an introduction to solving complex problems using systems science approach with the focus on Agent-based models. At the beginning of the course we will discuss and illustrate scientific objectives and the choice of the most appropriate modelling tool to meet the objective. The course will provide an overview of statistical models, Markov models, system dynamics models, and agent-based models. The course will then describe the main components and main steps in agent-based modelling. Laboratory part of the course will focus on actual building of an ABM. It will involve individual and team exercises. We will discuss approaches to model validation so that they are “trustable”.
