Abstract

Agent-based computational economics (ACE)is the computational study of economies modelled as evolving systems of autonomous interacting agents. This short paper is a brief guide to recent ACE research. For more information, visit the ACE Web site at http://www.econ.iastate.edu/tesfatsi/ace.htm. Resources available at the ACE Web site include surveys, an annotated syllabus of readings, software, teaching materials, pointers to research on economic and social network formation, and pointers to individual researchers and research groups.
