ModEco and the PMM - A simple physically conservative complete sustainable economy.
Perpetual Motion Machine - A simple economy that operates at both a biophysical and economic level, and is sustainable. The goal: to determine the necessary and sufficient conditions of sustainability, and the attendant necessary trade-offs.

Capital Exchange Models – With Investigations of Entropic Index.
In EiLab the capital exchange models of Drăgulescu and Yakovenko (2000) are replicated. In addition, the concept of entropic index for ABMs is developed, and two new models are added to explore the entropic index, along with some analytic ...

A model of urban expansion policy scenarios using an agent-based approach—a case of the Guangzhou Metropolitan Region of China
Three policy scenarios for urban expansion under the influences of the behaviours and decision modes of four agents and their interactions have been applied to predict the future development patterns of the Guangzhou metropolitan region.

A model of groundwater usage by farmers in the Upper Guadiana, Spain
An agent-based model to investigate the history of irrigated agriculture in the Upper Guadiana Basin, Spain, in order to learn about the influence of farmers’ characteristics (inter alia profit orientation, risk aversion, skills, available labour...

An agent-based model generating social practices
This model expands approaches from social practice theories and is used to investigate the ability of the underlying conceptual model to explain the emergence of social practices, defined as routine behaviour that is similar amoung peers.

A model of environmental awareness spread and its effect in resource consumption reduction
The model reproduces the spread of environmental awareness among agents and the impact of awareness level of the agents on the consumption of a resource, like energy. An agent is a household with a set of available advanced smart metering ...

An agent-based model to study the effects of trust in coalition formation
This model is an agent-based simulation that consists of agents who play the spatial prisioner’s dilemma game with coalition formation. The coalition dynamics are mainly influenced by how much the agents trust their leaders. The main objective...

Homophily-driven Network Evolution and Diffusion
The model is an experimental ground to study the impact of network structure on diffusion. It allows to construct a social network that already has some measurable level of homophily, and simulate a diffusion process over this social network.
