VENTITY USER'S GUIDE.
An Agent Based Model (ABM) allows simulating the actions and interactions of many agents or entities in order to evaluate their impact on the system as a whole. These models are used in areas such as industry, business, biology, ecology, and the social sciences.
The book provides:
1.- Immediate results. From the first pages the reader is already able to create an ABM model.
2.- A guide for beginners. Each concept is explained in detail with the support of more than 1000 figures.
3.- Didactic models. The 40 models included are designed to learn progressively. The models, with some help videos can be downloaded.
4.- Practical approach. The book allows the reader to see the possible applications to their own area of interest.
5.- Free and easy software. Specific and free software for personal and educational use is used, and no prior training is needed. It is not necessary to know programming languages.
