There are tons of examples here:


But I been unable to find a good guide explaining what is the recommended approach to build such a simulation...

Concretely, I am looking for a link to Mathematica help or a book like https://www.amazon.com/An-Introduction-Agent-Based-Modeling-Engineered/dp/0262731894 but built around Mathematica instead of built around NetLogo... Is there a single one?

    $\begingroup$ Look for work by Charles Macal e.g. in library.wolfram.com. I believe this came up recently on MSE but I cannot locate a link. "Agent-based modeling and simulation" is one article but there may be others as well. $\endgroup$ Mar 8, 2016 at 0:33
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, unfortunately library.wolfram.com/infocenter/search/… points me to library.wolfram.com/infocenter/Conferences/5767 which it seems to delegate agents to repast.sourceforge.net. What I want to know is how to build this kind of thing with pure Wolfram language (as in the CDF examples linked). $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Mmm, maybe you mean library.wolfram.com/infocenter/Conferences/6513 .... $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Certainly that would be one. I think there may be others by Macal and perhaps coauthors. Not necessarily at library.w.c, I think some of that relevant work is available at an Argonne site. $\endgroup$ Mar 8, 2016 at 4:16

    $\begingroup$ Perhaps the books by Richard J Gaylord et al. Computer Simulations with Mathematica, and Modeling Nature: Cellular Automata Simulations with Mathematica. $\endgroup$ Mar 8, 2016 at 15:49
