Analysis of the Influence of the Penalty on the Cooperative Behavior Based on Netlogo Computer Simulation

Lin JIANG, Yueliang SU


At present, cooperative behavior is mainly in three aspects: theoretical research, computer simulation and empirical analysis. The basic research paradigm including the game method and peer evaluation method. This paper research based on multi agent is designed and implemented a cooperative bank system based on Netlogo platform, in the system to study whether the effects of punishment on cooperative behavior. Through the Netlogo simulation model and analysis of the operation, if there is no social punishment selfish people will be more likely to survive. In order to make the environment conducive to cooperation, this paper establishes the penalty system.
