NetLogo is a multi-agent modeling environment originally conceived by the complex systems community for simulating natural and social phenomena. Despite its simplicity, NetLogo is a powerful tool in many fields of research. It is especially well suited for modeling large collections of independent agents developing over time, thus being a promising solution for simulating and analyzing distributed systems such as modern wireless networks. In this chapter we illustrate the feasibility of this approach, by providing a detailed tutorial about the application of NetLogo to wireless communications.
