Assessment and validation of multi-agent models

Amblard F., Bommel P., Rouchier J.. 2007. In : ed. by Denis Phan, Frédéric Amblard. Agent-based modelling and simulation in the social and human sciences. Oxford : Bardwell Press, p. 93-116. (GEMAS Studies in social analysis series).

In this chapter, we shall thus approach various criteria to tackle several aspects, going from the conception of the model to its use, to assess it rather than validate it. A more general discussion about the valuation of knowledge through an epistemological point of view is presented in the appendix of this chapter. It also deals with the question of simulation as "experimentation".
