Docking Agent-based Simulation of Collective Emotion to Equation-based Models and Interactive Agents

Stefan Rank

The creation and demise of e-communities is greatly influenced by emergent emotional phenomena that warrant study above the level of individuals: collective emotions. Our requirements for an agent-based simulation of these phenomena are constrained both by the data available from online communities as well as by the scenarios of use for the simulation. In this paper, we consider both the relation to mathematical models developed in parallel as well as the use of the simulation as decision support for interactive conversational systems. We show how both of these 'docking' attempts inform the simulation design and contribute to it.
