An Object-Oriented Parallel Social Simulation Framework
MetadataShow full item record
Agent-Based Modeling (ABM) is a powerful social simulation technique that employs a bottom-up approach for opinion dynamics study. In this work, we develop a social simulation framework based on ABM. The framework supporting multiple features of interest to social scientists and experimenters. The framework supports multiple models where model inputs can be specified in terms of parameters with high-degree of freedom. Weighted and unweighted graphs are supported. And multiple output formats are available. We also showcase the framework by studying select models from social model literature.
