Agent-based modelling

In agent based models, a society is represented by a set of agents interacting with one another and with their environment. Agents follow simple rules but can be designed to adapt their behaviour to satisfy certain goals. Thus they can be responsive to changes in the environment, such as groundwater availability in the example here.
