Title : Simple Matching Protocols for Agent-based Models

Author(s) : Andrea Borsato

Abstract : The main purpose of this article is to show how simple matching protocols suitable for agent-based models can be developed from scratch. Keeping the feature of the underlying economy at minimum, I develop, detail, and present the code for three matching processes. Their small size and flexibility may act as a stimulus to non-expert students to undertake such stream of literature and address a variety of research topics.

Key-words : Agent-based Modelling, Matching Protocols, Computer Simulation, Linear Matrix Algebra, R.
