Online Tutorial Page(for the ESRC / Oxford Spring School material)
This page links to the practical exercises for the Social Networks and Agent-Based Modelling tutorial.
Part 1 (lecture format)
Presentation on theory of Social Networks and ABMs, introducing the two models we shall be looking at: JinGirNew(JGN) Network model and the Innovation Model, and the tutorial software: JAVA, RePast and RealJ.
Part 2 (lab class format)
Practical 1: Start RePast, load the JinGirNewNet demo model, run simulations and produce the Pajek network files.
Practical 2*: Open RealJ and create a project for JinGirNewNet. Modify the source code and recompile the demo. Start Java and call RePast from within the RealJ environment.
Practical 3: Work with the Innovation Model using the RePast toolbar and use the visualisations to describe the network dynamics. Generate datasets for both one- and two two-mode networks.
Install Repast 3.1 (in the recommended directory, something like: C:\Program Files\Repast 3\Repast J\) and RealJ (if following the programmers version).
I recommend these two models are unzipped in two new folders (c:\repast models\JinGirNewNet and c:\repast models\InnovationModel) and subdirectories (\data) are created to store the network outputs.
