[en] A Multi-agent approach forin silicosimulations ofmicro-biological systemsProverbio D., Gallo L., Passalacqua B., Pellegrino J., Maggiora M.AbstractUsing a Multi-agent systems paradigm, the present project develops, validates and exploits a computa-tionaltestbedthat simulates micro-biological complex systems, namely the aggregation patterns of thesocial amoebaDyctiostelium discoideum. We propose a new design and implementation for managingdiscrete simulations with autonomous agents on a microscopic scale, thus focusing on their social be-havior and mutual interactions. Then, the dependence on the main physical variables is tested, namelydensity and number of amoebas; in addition, we analyze the robustness of the dynamics against var-ious noise sources. Along with these results, we suggest a methodology for further studies that makeuse of our validated model.
