This paper shows an environment for agent-based simulation of corporate strategy.
We study the influence of technological efficiency and organizational inertia on the emergence of competition when firms decide myopically. Using an agent-based computer simulation model, we observe the competitive reaction of a former monopolist to the advent of a new competitor.(...)
We study an agency model, in which the principal has only incomplete information about the agent's preferences, in a dynamic setting. Through repeated interaction with the agent, the principal learns about the agent's preferences and can thus adjust the inventive system. In a dynamic...
When running agent-based simulations using ready-made components, one usually faces heterogenity problems both for the agents implementation and for the underlying platform. To circumvent these kind of hindrances, we introduce a wrapper technique for mapping the functionality of agents living in...
Das ZEW und die Universität Mannheim haben mit ihrem Computersimulationsprogramm "European TaxAnalyzer" die Auswirkungen der Steuerreformen in Deutschland und in Frankreich für eine repräsentative mittelständische Kapitalgesellschaft des verarbeitenden Gewerbes untersucht...
In diesem Beitrag stellen wir ein Konzept greifbarer, gegenständlicher Benutzungsschnittstellen vor. Es werdenÜbergänge zwischen dem Modellieren im Realen und dem Erstellen virtueller Modelle geschaffen. Synchronzum gegenständlichen Modell entsteht ein virtuelles Abbild, das für Simulation,...
The computational properties of an econometric method are fundamentaldeterminants of its importance and practical usefulness, in conjunction withthe method’s statistical properties. Computational methods in econometricsare advanced through successfully combining ideas and methods in...
