Agent-Based Computational Demography: Using Simulation to by Francesco C. Billari,Alexia Prskawetz

By Francesco C. Billari,Alexia Prskawetz

Agent-Based Computational Demography (ABCD) goals at beginning a brand new flow of study between social scientists whose pursuits lie in figuring out demographic behaviour. The publication takes a micro-demographic (agent-based) viewpoint and illustrates the possibilities of machine simulation as an relief in concept development. The chapters of the e-book, written by means of prime specialists both in demography or in agent-based modelling, deal with numerous key questions. Why can we desire agent-based computational demography? How can ABCD be utilized to the examine of migrations, kin demography, and old demography? What are the peculiarities of agent-based versions as utilized to the demography of human populations? ABCD is of curiosity to all scientists drawn to learning demographic behaviour, in addition to to computing device scientists and modellers who're trying to find a promising box of application.
