  1. 1. Modeling Oil Exploration and Production : Resource-Constrained and Agent-Based Approaches

    Author : Kristofer Jakobsson; Kjell Aleklett; Rob Hart; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Oil production; forecasting; modeling; Engineering physics; Teknisk fysik; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot globala energiresurser; Engineering Science with specialization in the Science of Global Energy Resources;

    Abstract : Energy is essential to the functioning of society, and oil is the single largest commercial energy source. Some analysts have concluded that the peak in oil production is soon about to happen on the global scale, while others disagree. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modeling Organizational Dynamics : Distributions, Networks, Sequences and Mechanisms

    Author : Hernan Mondani; Fredrik Liljeros; Rickard Sandell; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; organizational dynamics; social organizing; organizational change; modeling; organizational growth; process stability; labor flow network; employment trajectories; heavy-tailed distributions; complex network analysis; sequence analysis; agent-based modeling; sociophysics; Sociology; sociologi;

    Abstract : The study of how social organizations work, change and develop is central to sociology and to our understanding of the social world and its transformations. At the same time, the underlying principles of organizational dynamics are extremely difficult to investigate. READ MORE

  3. 3. A Learning-driven Approach for Behavior Modeling in Agent-based Simulation

    Author : Robert Junges; Franziska Klügl; Mathias Broxvall; Lars Braubach; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; agent-based simulation; agent modeling; agent learning;

    Abstract : Agent-based simulation is a prominent application of the agent-based system metaphor. One of the main characteristics of this simulation paradigm is the generative nature of the outcome: the macro-level system behavior is generated from the micro-level agent behavior. READ MORE

  4. 4. Multi-Agent Based Simulations in the Grid Environment

    Author : Dawit Mengistu; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Grid computing; Multi-agent Based Simulation; Performance Modeling; Performance Prediction; Agenter datorprogram ;

    Abstract : The computational Grid has become an important infrastructure as an execution environment for scientific applications that require large amount of computing resources. Applications which would otherwise be unmanageable or take a prohibitively longer execution time under previous computing paradigms can now be executed efficiently on the Grid within a reasonable time.

  5. 5. An agent-based approach to supply side modeling of agricultural and power systems

    Author : Emma Jonson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; power system transitions; Agent-based modeling; agricultural land-use; Cobweb model; stability; non-equilibrium; price fluctuations; market interaction;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the modeling of economic systems in the context of agricultural and power systems, and some aspects of the difference between the standard economics equilibrium approach and the agent-based approach. We model the supply side, where agents make decisions on what to produce or in what to invest. READ MORE
