Agent-based modeling allows simulation of the actions and interactions of autonomous agents - both individual and collective entities - so that their effects can be assessed on a system as a whole. A hallmark of TNT research has been the pioneering application of agent-based modeling techniques to the study of technology systems and their evolution.
Together with Nebojsa Nakicenovic and Arnulf Grubler, Tieju Ma drafted a major review paper on the usefulness and insights gained from agent-based modeling in diverse domains, for example, technological complexity, agent-based interactions in consumer adoption decisions, and network coordination problems.
Publication of the review paper is planned for 2014.
