Multi Agent System Using MS Excel
Is it possible to create multi agent simulation merely using spreadsheet like Microsoft Excel? The answer is yes. In this tutorial I will show you how to make a very simple game of multi agent using MS Excel, without any macro programming. Yes, really, you don't need to be a programmer to build multi agent system. At least this tutorial will serve as introduction to do the real multi agent simulation. You can also use spreadsheet as a prototype to play around with our algorithm before hard coding our program in your favorite programming language. You can download the companion file of this tutorial here.
This tutorial is divided into three sections:
Race of multi agents : how to use the spreadsheet that you can download for free
How the program work : principle behind the animation
Programming Multi Agent Simulation Step by Step : detail instruction to build MAS in spreadsheet
