SYS 6035 - Agent-Based Modeling and Simulation of Complex Systems

Complex system are composed of many independent parts, each endowed with behavioral rules that dictate its actions while the collective behavior of the overall system displays unpredictable, /emergent/ properties, thus the whole is indeed more than the sum of its parts. The course will examine the nature of complex systems as observed in many disciplines including biology, physics, economics, political science, ecology, sociology, and engineering systems. Agent-based modeling and simulation will be used as a tool for further understanding such systems. Prerequisite: Agent-Based Modeling and Simulation of Complex Systems.
