Class Model Examples

Avid readers of this blog (if there are any) might have noticed at the end of each semester I do a post pertaining to class models from the various courses I teach. This often involves a short movie of some of these models like the one below.

Often I get asked about these models are, so finally I have complied a selection of them on GitHub: These are only NetLogo  models (for the time being) as I use it as a way of introducing students to agent-based modeling and programing.  As noted on the readme of the repository these models come as is. What explanations there are is given in the readme file for each model (these mainly come in the form of abstracts from the papers that were submitted with the models). No further explanations, support etc. will be given and are only provided to show the range of problems agent-based models can be used to explore. I also need to acknowledge all the students who submitted the models, you know who you are! This project would not be possible without you!

Maybe one day I will also get around to containerizing some of these models. For those interested containerization and how to do this for NetLogo models, has a great tutorial on this (click here for further details).
