The e-book takes a micro-demographic (agent-based) viewpoint and illustrates the prospects of desktop simulation as an reduction in idea construction. The chapters of the publication, written via prime specialists both in demography or in agent-based modelling, handle a number of key questions. Why can we desire agent-based computational demography? How can ABCD be utilized to the examine of migrations, relations demography, and historic demography? What are the peculiarities of agent-based types as utilized to the demography of human populations? ABCD is of curiosity to all scientists drawn to learning demographic behaviour, in addition to to laptop scientists and modellers who're searching for a promising box of application.
