This chapter provides the reader with a practical introduction to agent-based modeling, via the Repast Simphony programming environment. Using examples of agent-based models from an earlier chapter, we look in detail at how to build models via either flowcharts or Java code. We illustrate some of the ways in which a toolkit such as Repast considerably simplifies the life of the modeler by providing extensive support for model visualization, charting of results, and multiple runs, for instance.
