DMarks II - Agent-Based Economy Simulation
Introduction DMarks II is an agent-based platform for
automated trading and its simulation for distributed agents connected by
a network. Based on Java, it has been written by Erich Kutschinski at
für Informatik at the University of Mainz and released
under the GPL. DMarks II has been developed together with Daniel Polani
Uthmann based on their earlier DMarks I system which had been
first presented at ASIM
1999. Its versatility and power has been successfully used to
study multiagent learning in trading agents scenarios (see e.g. the CEF or JEDC paper).
It is also being used by Leigh Tesfatsion in
Computational Economics (ACE) course.
Here we provide two versions:
II in a version containing the source and compiled code, javadoc,
some scripts showing how to run simulations and a powerpoint
presentation of the results (delivered at the Computing in Economics
and Finance 2000 Conference in Barcelona, see publication).
II (extended) additionally contains a number of simulation logs
and evaluation scripts.
If you are interested in agent-based computational economics, social
interaction systems or complex multiagent systems in general, we
recommend the ACE web site
with its excellent resources by Leigh Tesfatsion at
Iowa State University.
One of the sites linked at this ACE website focuses on interactive
computer demos and another on software: these sites are directly
