Agent-Based Modeling and Network Dynamics

Chapter 8 is concerned with economic and social networks in reality. Empirical studies of economic and social networks accumulated over the last few decades provide another impetus for work on the network formation processes. The empirically inspired studies attempt to address network formation in each domain of real life, such as networks in markets, from goods-and-service markets, labor markets, to financial markets. Agent-based models of these empirical networks are developed in the last ten to fifteen years, in parallel to the development of the agent-based models of network games. This chapter reviews three major market-oriented networks, namely, the buyer-seller network, the labor contact network, and the world trade web.

Keywords:   buyer-seller network, labor contact network, referral system, strong ties, weak ties, multiplex network, world trade network, gravity model, fitness model, maximum entropy model
