  1. 1. Carrots, Sticks, and Other Tricks: Understanding the effectiveness and robustness of social mechanisms for encouraging cooperation in a complex adaptive system

    University essay from Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för nationalekonomi

    Author : Thomas Atherton; Andreas Bergström; [2022]
    Keywords : Agent-based modelling; Behavioural; Complexity; Cooperation; Evolutionary;

    Abstract : Cooperation is critical for success in many economic interactions, but social dilemmas between the best outcomes for society and for individual decision-makers often arise. This thesis adds to existing game-theoretic and behavioural studies by evaluating cooperation in the public goods game (a canonical social dilemma) in a more complex, realistic system. READ MORE

  2. 2. Analysis of Single Echelon Logistics Model for Delivering Temperature Sensitive E-groceries in Cities using Electric Vehicle

    University essay from KTH/Industriell produktion

    Author : Harivignesh Narayanasamy; [2022]
    Keywords : Electromobility in last mile; E-commerce; Agent-based simulation; Urban logistics; Supply chain in Sweden; Temperature sensitive e-groceries; Elektromobilitet på sista milen; E-handel; Agentbaserad simulering; Stadslogistik; Leveranskedja i Sverige; Temperaturkänsliga e-livsmedel;

    Abstract : With the increase in the growth of the e-commerce sector since the past decade, the pressure has been progressively more applied to the operations and supply chain. As the pandemic has pushed the companies to provide services at the customer doorstep due to the difficulties in accessing services from brick-and-mortar stores, the logistical operation of the companies is continuously put under pressure.

  3. 3. Simulate Bacterial Movement through Chemotaxis

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för data- och informationsteknik

    Author : Rasmus Durgé; Johan Ek; Jonny Fredriksson; Emil Logren; Mohamad Melhem; Rik Muijs; [2021-09-14]
    Keywords : chemotaxis; computational biology; agent-based simulation; Unity engine;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the development of an agent-based simulation of E. coli chemotaxis in C# and the Unity game engine. The agents use a mathematical model of the chemical pathway underlying chemotaxis to produce either forward-motion (running) or rotation (tumbling), in response to the concentration of ligand in their immediate environment.

  4. 4. Simulation of standing versus crawling during evacuation from a smoke-filled room

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : David Bergendorff; Jonas Lundin; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Crawling is often the recommended method when evacuating from a burning room. In this study, an agent based crowd simulation in combination with a fire dynamics simulator is used in order to compare how well crawling evacuation compares to a standing type of evacuation. READ MORE

  5. 5. An Individual-based Simulation Approach for Generating a Synthetic Stroke Population

    University essay from Malmö universitet/Institutionen för datavetenskap och medieteknik (DVMT)

    Author : Abdulrahman Alassadi; [2021]
    Keywords : Agent-based simulation; microsimulation; modeling; synthetic population; Design Science; Repast Simphony; stroke.;

    Abstract : The time to treatment plays a major factor in recovery for stroke patients, and simulation techniques can be valuable tools for testing healthcare policies and improving the situation for stroke patients. However, simulation requires individual-level data about stroke patients which cannot be acquired due to patient’s privacy rules. READ MORE
