Agent-Based Computational Economics (ACE)

This new field of study "is roughly characterized as the computational study of economies modeled as evolving decentralized systems of autonomous interacting agents. A central concern of ACE researchers is to understand the apparently spontaneous appearance of global regularities in economic processes, such as the unplanned coordination of trade in decentralized market economies that economists associate with Adam Smith's invisible hand." This site offers introductory and detailed surveys, a list of readings, software, links to other ACE sites and resources, conferences, and news notes.
