2.13.3 Simulation Methods

The simulation methods exploit multi agent technology to analyse the network dynamics, in contrary to descriptive or statistical methods which examine social network dynamics quantitatively. In the simulation method, members in a social network are often modeled intelligent agents with ability to behave and make decisions based on certain criteria in a particular situation. The collective behaviors of all members in a network will determine [how the network evolves from one structure to another in a considered scenario.]

3.1.3 Simulation Methods

Unlike descriptive or statistical methods, which examine social network dynamics quantitatively, simulation methods rely on multi-agent technology to analyze network dynamics. In this method, members in a social network are often modeled and implemented as computer agents who have the abilities to behave and make decisions based on certain criteria. The collective behaviors of all members in a network will determine how the network evolves from one structure to another.
