“This book exemplifies one of the most successful approaches to modeling and simulating [the] new generation of complex systems. FLAME was designed to make the building of large-scale complex systems models straightforward and the simulation code that it generates is highly efficient and can be run on any modern technology. With FLAME, they can easily increase the agent number and run models on parallel computers, to save on simulation complexity and waiting time for results. Because the field is so large and active, the book does not aim to cover all aspects of agent-based modeling and its research challenges. Features:• Provides the first book on FLAME • Analyzes agent-based modeling in various disciplines including biology, sociology, and economics • Enables readers to write their agent models in FLAME with code • Explores agent models from the perspective of building software• Includes code examples throughout from biology, sociology, and economics cross various disciplines.
