Network structure and N-dependence in agent-based herding models

  • Alfarano, Simone
  • Milakovic, Mishael

We derive microscopic foundations for a well-known probabilistic herding model in the agent-based finance literature. While the model is quite robust with respect to behavioral heterogeneity, the network structure describing the very feasibility of agent interaction turns out to have a crucial and non-trivial impact on the macroscopic properties of the model.
