Older version of the library
This is the new library of micro-behaviours authored by the Modelling4All team. An older version of the library is still available.
A specialised library of swarming
micro-behaviours is available to build models found in Couzin, I. D., Krause, J., Franks, N. R. & Levin, S.A.(2005)
Effective leadership and decision making in animal groups on the move Nature
Here is a simple swarming model using some of these micro-behaviours. Here is three-dimensional version of the model.
A library of opinion dynamics micro-behaviours inspired by the paper "How can extremism prevail? A study based on the relative agreement interaction
model" by Guillaume Deffuant, Frédéric Amblard, Gérard Weisbuch and Thierry Faure
(2002); Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation vol. 5, no. 4; <http://jasss.soc.surrey.ac.uk/5/4/1.html>
can be used to explore modelling opinion dynamics.
Here is a relative agreement model
The library of epidemic micro-behaviours were designed to explore the SVIR model as presented in
"Mathematical models of vaccination", Almut Scherer and Angela McLean, British
Medical Bulletin 2002;62 187-199. Here are some
suggestions for exploring vaccination models.

You can compose the elements of the Sugarscape library of micro-behaviours to recreate the models in Growing
Artificial Societies by Joshua M. Epstein and Robert Axtell, Brookings Institute
Press, The MIT Press, 1996.
Here is a step-by-step guide to building Sugarscape models.

Here is a
sample predator-prey model
created using this
step-by-step guide to building an ecosystem. And here is that model extended to model heterogeneity in prey and geography using this guide to extending the predator prey model.
Here is a
model of the Spanish Flu Pandemic and here is a guide to its use. The model does not run in the web version of NetLogo.

A collection of models for exploring probabilistic reasoning.
The micro-behaviours listed here were constructed for the BehaviourComposer as
part of the Modelling4All
Project at Oxford University originally funded by the
BehaviourComposer: ignore everything after this.
