As well as the thesis PDF, the modelling framework I developed for the PhD is included here. Built in Java, this linked an agent-based spatial economic model to a data framework and a set of interactive visualisation tools. The visualisation tools are designed to produce publication-quality outputs as well as being used to help explore model dynamics. Here's an example of their use in a publication.
Files and folders in the model code zip:
"CoreModel" folder: contains runnable jar for the core model version in section 2.5. Instructions on "readme.txt" file in the folder
"FrameWorkModelBuilds" folder: contains a series of runnable jar files for thesis models. "listOfModels.txt" explains them and links to the sections of the thesis they appear in.
"EoS_vs_LoV_ExcelModel_DanOlner2013web.xlsx": spreadsheet version of the `transmission belt' mechanism, section 6.3.4.
"exchangetestrandom": Matlab file for the random money exchange example, section 4.7.2.
