Computer simulation is the third methodology of scientific research, complementing theory and experiment. This methodology is new and still developing. In particular, it is still difficult to predict the behavior of complex systems, in which a large number of components are interacting together and various collective behaviors emerge. Our research interest is on exploring the full possibility of computer simulation to understand complex systems.
