From Notions to Models and Back Again, Again
A typical thread in research relies on the maturing of ideas through an iterative process of construction, testing and refinement. In this talk I will trace some such trajectories of ideas by illustration from some of my own and others’ experiences in agent-based modelling. I draw inspiration from previous commentaries, including from those who generated the mottos: “No Notation without Denotation” ; “No Notation without Exploitation” ; and “No experimentation without explanation” .
