ECO 581 - Agent-Based Modeling

This skills-based course in the modeling of social-ecological systems, provides students the conceptual and computational tools they need to design, modify, test and build agent-based models of socio-ecological systems. It draws inspiration and theoretical perspectives from research on common pool resource dynamics, human cooperation, evolutionary game theory, and complex adaptive systems. Students will use the free, cross-platform modeling system called NetLogo to explore the dynamics of models, critique these models, modify and extend them.
