This book explores how researchers can use NetLogo software platform in the field of Social Sciences and is organized like this: (i) The first chapter is an introduction of the book that gives to readers the essential information regarding the field of Agent-based Computational Social Sciences; (ii) The second chapter will make a conceptual validation of the agent-based computational model of an artificial society implemented using NetLogo software platform; (iii) The third chapter will describe in detail the operational validation of the agent-based model described in the second chapter; (iv) The last chapter will present the conclusions of the computational experiments done with the artificial society. The book is addressed to teachers, researchers, students practicing the social sciences. By its interdisciplinary approach, the work could be of particular interest for mathematicians and computer specialists who study the problem of agent-based modeling of social phenomena.
