Agent-based modeling ABM is a recent simulation modeling technique that consists of modeling a system from the bottom up, capturing the interactions taking place between the systems constituent units. Such a bottom up approach enables users to describe and predict emergent phenomena. These include aggregate, system-level behaviors that can be counter-intuitive. Because decentralized command and control DC2 paradigms can sometimes lead to counter-intuitive phenomena, ABM is the tool of choice to test DC2 and can provide significant insight into the design of DC2 approaches.
