Abstract

In this paper we describe a general method for the conversion of an equation-based model to an agent-based simulation. We illustrate the process by converting a well-known recent case-study in epidemiology (zombie infection), and show how we may obtain qualitatively similar results, whilst gaining access to the many benefits of an agent-based implementation.
