Evolutionary Agent-Based Policy Analysis in Dynamic Environments

This is an interdisciplinary research project to design and to evaluate public economic policies by means of evolutionary agent-based computation. A simple and robust model of economic evolution is built where behavior evolves by imitation in a social network. Numeric agent-based simulations are used to investigate the evolutionary process under different environmental dynamics. And environmental policies are formulated and evaluated that explicitly take the evolution of economic behavior into account.
