As the world becomes more complicated and linked, many of our research questions can no longer be answered using straightforward models. Agent-Based Models with MATLAB introduces one of the most important methodologies for complex systems modeling, called Agent-Based Modeling (ABM), using computational implementations and accompanying MATLAB software code as a means of inspiring readers to apply agent-based models to solve a diverse range of problems. Observing the implementation of a particular approach through code can be helpful for readers, even those with strong mathematical abilities, as it eliminates ambiguities and uncertainties, making the material easier to grasp and communicate. The book comes with a large amount of software code accompanying the main text, and the modeling systems described in the book are implemented using MATLAB as the programming language. Despite the heavy mathematical components of Agent-Based Models and complex systems, it is possible to utilize these models without in-depth understanding of their mathematical fundamentals. For many readers, a more feasible goal is to grasp the concepts of these models through programming instead of mathematical formulations. Agent-Based Models with MATLAB enables computer scientists, mathematicians, researchers and engineers to apply ABM in a wide range of research and engineering applications. The book gradually advances from basic to more advanced methods, while reinforcing understanding of complex systems through practical, hands-on applications of various computational models.
