Availability of agent-based modeling textbook

Volker Grimm and I would like to announce the availability of “Agent-based and
Individual-based Modeling: A Practical Introduction”, a textbook on
scientific agent-based modeling for university classes and people
learning on their own.

The book provides a detailed introduction to programming models with Uri
Wilensky’s NetLogo platform, but also covers conceptual and
methodological topics such as modeling fundamentals, software testing,
conceptual and theoretical frameworks for ABMs, and model analysis.

Information on the book is at:


Thanks to all of you who provided comments and help on drafts!

That’s great news Steve and Volker. It will be a wonderful resource for teaching about computational modeling.
