Materials on Agent-Based Model

Here is a new book on Agent-Based Models of Geographical Systems published by Springer 2012.

Agent-based model is a very powerful research tools for crowd behavior analysis. I went through this book, there are two chapters directly related to crowd behavior analysis:

  1. Chapter 18:  Agent tools, techniques and methods for macro and microscopic simulation.
  2. Chapter 21: Applied Pedestrian Modeling.


Besides, in Chapter 12: The Integration of Agent-based Modeling and Geographical Information for Geospatial Simulation, it introduces and compares several kinds of Agent-based simulation open source toolkits.

Here I list :

  • Swarm:  developed by Center for the Study of Complex Systems at the University of Michigan.
  • MASON (Multi Agent Simulation Of Neighbourhood): developed by the Evolutionary Computational Laboratory and the Centre for Social Complexity at George Mason University
  • StarLogo: developed by Media Lab at MIT.
