***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** I decided that simply downloading the program was my best bet. Very fascinating stuff, looking forward to diving in a bit more to learn about how best to use such a program.
Mike,It looks like most (all?) of the models linked on the NetLogo website are broken. Is there someplace else that one can look at them, and/or are you able to fix the broken links?ex:Modeling networks, and particularly being able to model the diffusion of something through a network is of great interest so I'm looking forward to diving into NetLogo to not only see if it can help us but also to learn a bit about how it goes about doing what it does. If you have any pointers on that front I'd be most appreciative.Cheers,SteveOn Fri, Jan 8, 2010 at 12:01 PM, Michael Martin <[log in to unmask]> wrote:

Another way of analyzing this might be to use an "agent-based-modelling"
approach like that used in NetLogo ( http://ccl.northwestern.edu/netlogo/ ).
This is a free application available from Northwestern Univ and it has
model libraries as part of the package. One of the sample models is called
"Virus on a Network". There are also generic diffusion models for networks
and 'infection' models.
