Modeling collective dynamics of social systems: Incorporating various social mechanisms into agent-based models
by Farrell, Dene Leo, M.S., State University of New York at Binghamton, 2012, 65; 1516639
Abstract (Summary)

I present three original papers demonstrating complex behavior arising from collective dynamics in agent-based models (ABM) focusing on evolutionary and cognitive mechanisms. The first report demonstrates the coupled emergence of cooperation and selfish punishment behavior in groups of individuals playing an iterated public goods game. The second report demonstrates the effects of mental modeling within groups of decision makers. The third report demonstrates a synthesis of evolutionary and cognitive mechanisms.
