Abstrakt

Computer simulations are a different way of doing science from induction and deduction, they are about creating artificial worlds to study real worlds by analogy. Here we focus on a particular type of simulation model, Agent Based Models, that are capable of representing the essential features of complex social and business systems. We explain the role and value of these types of models and how they are built, tested and interpreted. We show how they can be used to better understand the behaviour of complex systems and also guide practitioners and policymakers.
