Going around again : modelling standing ovations with a flexible agent-based simulation framework.

Garnett, Philip (2012) 'Going around again : modelling standing ovations with a flexible agent-based simulation framework.', in Proceedings of the 2012 workshop on complex systems modelling and simulation. , pp. 27-46. CoSMoS.


We describe how we have used the CoSMoS process to trans- form a computer simulation originally developed for the simulation of plant development for use in modelling aspects of audience behaviour. An existing agent-based simulator is re-factored to simulate a completely dierent type of agent in 2D space. This is possible and desirable because the original simulator was designed with the intention that it could eas- ily be use to model a variety of dierent agents interacting in 2D and 3D space. The resulting simulation will be used to simulate the phe- nomena of standing ovations in audiences as a model system of tipping point behaviour. Continued development of this simulator, assisted by the CoSMoS process, has resulted in a general purpose lightweight sim- ulation framework.
