In this paper we propose a new multi-evolutionary agent model dedicated to social simulations, mainly for those problems where higher order dynamic behaviors (e.g. secondary emergent phenomena) are important to the investigated phenomenon. Its usefulness lies on its multilevel evolutionary adaptability which enables it to capture multiple parallel phenomena.

This on-going project aims to build an ontological model concerning recreational poly-drug use and to use an agent-based simulation, SimUse, to test and verify related public policies. We consider drug-use (and even more so poly-drug use) to be a complex adaptive system that needs to be studied via a methodology able.

In this paper, we discuss the critical role of simulation input modeling in a successful simulation study. Two pitfalls in simulation input modeling are then presented and we explain how any analyst, regardless of their knowledge of statistics, can easily avoid these pitfalls through the use of the ExpertFit distribution fitting software. We use a set of real-world data to demonstrate how the software automatically specifies and ranks probability distributions, and then tells the analyst whether the “best” candidate distribution is actually a good representation of the data. If no distribution provides a good fit, then ExpertFit can define an empirical distribution. In either case, the selected distribution is put into the proper format for direct input to the analyst’s simulation software.

In this paper, all of the operational activities of an actual container terminal in Japan are simulated to analyze the processing time and the bottlenecks of the operations flows. The method for collecting the required data for performing simulation is described, especially by making use of electronic real-time tracking data that is accumulated from the information systems. The procedure is applied to an actual container terminal in a port. It is found that the information obtained by performing simulation is effective for analyzing the performance of the operation.

In this paper, we propose the “Trust as a Service” framework to improve ways on trust management in cloud environments. In particular, we introduce an adaptive credibility model that distinguishes between credible trust feedbacks and malicious feedbacks by considering cloud service consumers’ capability and majority consensus of their feedbacks. The approaches have been validated by the prototype system and experimental results.

For a variety of reasons, simulation has enjoyed widespread application in health care and health care delivery systems. Although the dominant modeling methodology is discrete event simulation, numerous studies employ system dynamics, agent-based simulation, and hybrid/combined methods. Software has been increasingly adapted to health care through enhanced visualizations and modeling. Virtually every health care environment has been studied using simulation including hospitals, extended care, rehabilitation, specialty care, long-term care, public health, among others. Frequent problems are patient flow, staffing, works schedules, facilities capacity and design, admissions/scheduling, appointments, logistics, and planning. Health care problems are especially complicated by the fact that «people serve people», meaning people are both the customer and the supply. The customers arrive through a complex decision process that produces uncertain demand. The response is an even more complex organization of health care resources, each of which play a distinctive and overlapping role, providing a unique simulation challenge.

Simulation of financial institutions activity in transitional economies // In Proceedings of Regional Conference «Actual Issues of Modern Economic Science and International Relations» in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine, November 25-26, 2011. – Vol. 2, pp. 53-63. – ISBN 978-617-645-006-1.
The paper reviews the concepts of system dynamics and its applications to the simulation modeling of financial institutions daily activity. While widely applicable, the approach is of a particular interest in transitional and developing economies. The hybrid method of banking business processes re-engineering based on a combination of system dynamics, queuing theory and ordinary differential equations (Kolmogorov equations) is introduced. By the way of method illustration, we consider the promotion of a set of banking products among some categories of clients.

This paper proposes a modified form of random replication of data within a mobile peer-to-peer network based on predicting condition for a mobile node to replicate the object from it. It uses the unsupervised learning neural networks called the Self-Organizing Map by classifying the input attributes of each node and providing a training set - serving as a basis of identifying the nodes’ current state. To test the functionality of the technique, a simulation was developed in a multi-agent based modelling environment called the NetLogo and observations are compared with the proposed scheme with the existing algorithm.

Dirk Steinhauer The Simulation Toolkit Shipbuilding (STS) – 10 Years of Cooperative Development and Interbranch Applications // Материалы конференции COMPIT 2011 (European Conference on Computer and IT Applications in the Maritime Industries).
At Flensburger Shipyard simulation has been established as the main tool to support the decisions in production facility planning as well as in production planning and control. Because the available simulation tools are not sufficient for the usage in shipbuilding Flensburger Shipyard started the development of the Simulation Toolkit Shipbuilding (STS) in the year 2000. The STS contains a large variety of simulation tools for material flow modelling, model management, execution strategies and output analysis not strongly related to shipbuilding any more. It is further developed and used within the international cooperation SimCoMar and in the interbranch cooperation SIMoFIT.

In this essay, a simulation model, which emulates the change of middle class number in an economy environment after the government gives subsidies to the poverty, is made to infer the governmental macro-control’s influence to the national economy. The result indicates that the government plays a significant role in achieving a balance of the rich and the poverty by levying tax.
