Agent-Based Computational Demography (ABCD) goals at beginning a brand new circulation of study between social scientists whose pursuits lie in realizing demographic behaviour. The e-book takes a micro-demographic (agent-based) standpoint and illustrates the prospects of computing device simulation as an reduction in concept development. The chapters of the publication, written by way of best specialists both in demography or in agent-based modelling, deal with numerous key questions. Why can we want agent-based computational demography? How can ABCD be utilized to the research of migrations, relatives demography, and ancient demography? What are the peculiarities of agent-based versions as utilized to the demography of human populations? ABCD is of curiosity to all scientists attracted to learning demographic behaviour, in addition to to machine scientists and modellers who're trying to find a promising box of application.

Quali effetti sulla popolazione italiana? I matrimoni sono sempre più rari e tardivi; le nascite stanno diminuendo, anche nella popolazione di origine straniera; i flussi di nuovi immigrati consistent with motivi di lavoro sono rallentati, mentre cresce il numero di italiani che emigrano all’estero.
