Agent-Based Modelling of Socio-Technical Systems (Agent-Based Social Systems)

Buy

Decision makers in large scale interconnected network systems require simulation models for decision support. The behaviour of these systems is determined by many actors, situated in a dynamic, multi-actor, multi-objective and multi-level environment. How can such systems be modelled and how can the socio-technical complexity be captured? Agent-based modelling is a proven approach to handle this challenge. This book provides a practical introduction to agent-based modelling of socio-technical systems, based on a methodology that has been developed at TU Delft and which has been deployed in a large number of case studies. The book consists of two parts: the first presents the background, theory and methodology as well as practical guidelines and procedures for building models. In the second part this theory is applied to a number of case studies, where for each model the development steps are presented extensively, preparing the reader for creating own models.

Dependability of Self-Optimizing Mechatronic Systems (Lecture Notes in Mechanical Engineering)
Dependability of Self-Optimizing Mechatronic Systems (Lecture Notes in Mechanical Engineering)

Intelligent technical systems, which combine mechanical, electrical and software engineering with methods from control engineering and advanced mathematics, go far beyond the state of the art in mechatronics and open up fascinating perspectives. Among these systems are so-called self-optimizing systems, which are able to adapt their behavior...

Java for Bioinformatics and Biomedical Applications
Java for Bioinformatics and Biomedical Applications

Bioinformatics is at a crossroads. We work in a field that is changing every day, increasingly moving from specific solutions created by single researchers working alone or in small groups to larger, often geographically dispersed programs enabled by collaborative computing and open software. This book represents an important development,...


Sarbanes-Oxley Internal Controls: Effective Auditing with AS5, CobiT, and ITIL
Sarbanes-Oxley Internal Controls: Effective Auditing with AS5, CobiT, and ITIL
The passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOx) in 2002 almost seems like distant history today. That legislation became effective after a series of accounting scandals led to the failure of several then major corporations, such as Enron and WorldCom, the conviction and imprisonment of multiple key executives, and the failure of the major public...

The Radical Leap: A Personal Lesson in Extreme Leadership
The business world is ready for an entirely new approach to leadership, and Steve Farber has written the perfect book to energize business leaders and help them make the leap into extreme leadership. In fact, taking a giant "L.E.A.P" forward is exactly what Farber prescribes. What exactly is an extreme leader? One who cultivates love,...
Practical Programming: An Introduction to Computer Science Using Python (Pragmatic Programmers)
Practical Programming: An Introduction to Computer Science Using Python (Pragmatic Programmers)
Practical Programming is true to its name. The information it presents is organized around useful tasks rather than abstract constructs, and each chapter addresses a well-contained and important aspect of programming in Python. A student wondering “How do I make the computer do X?” would be able to find their answer very quickly with...
