SWARMS DYNAMICS : At the crossroad between statistical mechanics and agent-based modelling

[zur Übersicht]
Sarah de Nigris

In this talk, I will present a recent paper by an interdisciplinary collaboration of scientists, including Matteo and myself, which presents a development of the mathematical theory of swarms; Swarms theory sets itself, as the title goes, between statistical mechanics and ABMs and this work aims to develop a systems approach, which is to be applied to behavioral dynamics of social and economical systems. The modeling core of the approach accounts for the ability of social entities are to develop a specific strategy which is heterogeneously distributed by interactions which are nonlinearly additive. I close the talk with detailing an application to the prices dynamics in the interaction between buyers-sellers, to highlight the descriptive ability of the model.
