For some ABMs even simulation represents a challenge because of their size.
A Mathematical Framework for Agent Based Models of Complex Biological Networks
For instance, in the case of a multi-scale ABM one possible approach might be to construct phenomenological models for the higher scales that accurately model the aggregate dynamics of the lower scales without explicitly representing these.
A Mathematical Framework for Agent Based Models of Complex Biological Networks
Here we describe the details of constructing a polynomial model from ABM information stored in the ODD protocol format.
A Mathematical Framework for Agent Based Models of Complex Biological Networks
After the waiting time, the joint state held by Alice and Bob in the purified version of the protocol, i.e., before Alice measures, is thus of the form ρABM = IA ⊗ [(F ⊗ IM ) ◦ E ] (Φ⊗n ) , where Φ is an EPR-pair.
Quantum to Classical Randomness Extractors
As we will see below, it is however sufficient to consider how well a decoding attack D can preserve entanglement between Alice and Bob, where D acts on BM on the state ρABM from Equation (59) at the marked point in time.
