Agent-based modeling/simulation is an emerging field that uses bottom-up and experimental analysis in the social sciences. Selected research from that presented at the Third International Workshop on Agent-Based Approaches in Economic and Social Complex Systems 2004, held in May 2004 in Kyoto, Japan, is included in this book. The aim of the workshop was to employ the bottom-up approach to social and economic problems by modeling, simulation, and analysis using a software agent. This research area is an emerging interdisciplinary field among the social sciences and computer science, attracting broad attention because it introduces a simulation-based experimental approach to problems that are becoming increasingly complex in an era of globalization and innovation in information technology. The state-of-the-art research and findings presented in this book will be indispensable tools for anyone involved in this rapidly growing discipline.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Aus den Rezensionen:

“Der ... herausgegebene Band basiert auf einem der AESCS-Workshops, die regelmäßig im pazifisch-asiatischen Raum abgehalten werden. ... Gemäß dem Ursprung des Buches sind ausschließlich agentenbasierte Beiträge enthalten. ... Insgesamt betrachtet bietet das Buch einen guten Überblick über das reiche Spektrum methodischer Ansätze und konkreter Anwendungsmöglichkeiten der Forschungsmethode. ... Dennoch ist das Buch zu empfehlen, wenn man einen aktuellen Überblick über die Vielfalt der Methode bekommen möchte. Zudem rundet es die bisher betrachteten Communities ab und es findet sich eine große Anzahl an Beiträgen ...“ (in: DBW Die Betriebswirtschaft, July/August/2009, Vol. 69, Issue 4, S. 514 f.)
