Workshop on Agentization (15-17 September 2021)

While many mathematical and statistical models in the social sciences consist of interacting agents, it is often the case that strong assumptions have to be made for reasons of analytical tractability (e.g., representative agents, rational agents, equal probability of interaction between agents, attainment of agent-level equilibrium). Agent-based models (ABMs) are an emerging computational approach for […]
