Agent Based Modeling with Arena

Lots of attention has been given to agent based simulation problems.  At the 2015 Winter Simulation Conference, Dr. Averill Law stated that agent based is just a special case of discrete event simulation.  We couldn't agree more.

In this issue we share some insights into how Arena can be used to solve agent based problems.
