The volume explores such topics as differences between urban and suburban crime, burglar's mindsets, the use of time in burglary, victim selection, specific burglary techniques, victim lifestyles as contributing factors, and agent-based simulation models for studying crime.
agent-supported simulation (which "deals with the use of agents as a support facility to enable computer assistance in problem solving, experimentation, or enhancing cognitive capabilities"), and agent-based simulation (which "focuses on the use of agents for the generation of model behavior in a simulation study").
The second paper titled "Application of Microsimulation to the Modeling of Epidemics and Terrorist Attacks" by Ian Piper, Daniel Keep, Tony Green and Ivy Zhang describes a simulation tool for agent-based simulation.
The researchers hope that agent-based simulations may shed light on whether environmental or cultural factors were primarily responsible for the society's abrupt decline.
The only book to present the synergy between modeling and simulation, systems engineering, and agent technologies expands the notion of agent-based simulation to also deal with agent simulation and agent-supported simulation.
Among them are using agent-based simulation and game theory analysis to study knowledge flow in organizations, a framework for managing the life cycle of knowledge in global organizations, assessing the impact of knowledge transfer mechanisms on supply chain performance, improving organizational competitiveness by capturing tacit knowledge from transient workers, investigating the impact of knowledge management factors on new product development, zooming in on the effect of national culture on knowledge sharing behavior, an experiment of information elaboration in mediated knowledge transfer, and a case study of knowledge management utilization at two Jordanian universities.
Some specific subjects examined include risk acceptability criteria, heavy metals concentration in vegetables grown in Iraq, search and rescue robots, road tunnel safety in Italy, an open software platform for preventive security in crowded public places, and agent-based simulation of human movements during emergency evacuations of facilities.
Finally, chapter 6 presents an agent-based simulation model, SimISpace, that illustrates how the I-Space might be applied to concrete problems such those of intellectual property rights.
