There was a recent thread about the $subject on the SimSoc mailing list about Paul Krugman’s article in The New York Times. I believe it worth a few minutes to take a look on them - Richard Legéndi
We have submitted the final version of our paper to the ECPAM conference. Abstract This paper examines model replication in the context of agent-based simulation through two case studies. Replication of a computational model and validation of its results is an essential tool for scientific researchers, but it is rarely used by modelers. In our work we address […]
