Modeling Dynamic Violence: Adaptive Agent-based Models


Modeling Dynamic Violence: Adaptive Agent-based Models

Claus N. G., Svechkarev V.P.

This article presents an agent-based computational model of civil violence. In the model we present variant of civil violence when central authority seeks to suppress decentralized rebellion. This model involves two categories of actors. ‘‘Agents’’ are members of the general population and may be actively rebellious or not. ‘‘Cops’’ are the forces of the central authority, who seek out and arrest actively rebellious agents. Both type of actors are having attributes and behavioral rules.
