Agent-based modeling and simulation with Swarm by Hitoshi Iba

By Hitoshi Iba

Swarm-based multi-agent simulation ends up in larger modeling of initiatives in biology, engineering, economics, artwork, and plenty of different components. It additionally allows an realizing of complex phenomena that can not be solved analytically. Agent-Based Modeling and Simulation with Swarm offers the method for a multi-agent-based modeling process that integrates computational strategies equivalent to man made lifestyles, mobile automata, and bio-inspired optimization.

Each bankruptcy offers an outline of the matter, explores state of the art expertise within the box, and discusses multi-agent frameworks. the writer describes step-by-step easy methods to gather algorithms for producing a simulation version, application, process for visualisation, and additional learn projects. whereas the ebook employs the widely used Swarm process, readers can version and enhance the simulations with their very own simulator. To inspire hands-on exploration of emergent platforms, Swarm-based software program and resource codes can be found for obtain from the author’s site.

A thorough evaluate of multi-agent simulation and helping instruments, this publication indicates how this sort of simulation is used to procure an figuring out of advanced platforms and synthetic existence. It conscientiously explains how you can build a simulation software for varied applications.

Sample text

Biomorphs can be regarded as the first example of IEC, specifically, evolution artificially created with a computer through selection based on human subjective preferences. Hence, IEC offers a new creative technique based on user selections. Since many artists and researchers were attracted to this method after being captivated by biomorphs, the initial focus of IEC research was in artistic fields, particularly the application of IEC in computer graphics (CG) [106]. Such applications cover a number of areas, including CG synthesis of plants based on L-systems (Fig.

The next chapter presents an exposition of evolutionary methods, important fundamental techniques (simulation tools) that are used for these explanatory purposes. Chapter 2 Evolutionary Methods and Evolutionary Computation Science is – and how else can I say it – most fun when it plays with interesting ideas, examines their implications, and recognizes that old information might be explained in surprisingly new ways. Evolutionary theory is now enjoying this uncommon vigor (Stephen Jay Gould [44]).

The next sections describe these methods in detail with practical applications. 2 What are genetic algorithms? GAs have the following characteristics: • Candidate solutions are represented by sequences of characters • Mutation and crossover are used to generate solutions of the next generation Elements that constitute GAs include data representation (genotype or phenotype), selection, crossover, mutation, and alternation of generation. The performance of a search is significantly influenced by how these elements are implemented, as discussed below.
