Comparison of Agent-Based and Population-Based Simulations of Displacement of Crime
Within Criminology, the process of crime displacement is usually explained by referring to the interaction of three types of agents: criminals, passersby, and guardians. Most existing simulation models of this process are agent-based. However, when the number of agents considered becomes large, population-based simulation has computational advantages over agent-based simulation. This paper presents both an agent-based and a population-based simulation model of crime displacement, and reports a comparative evaluation of the two models. In addition, an approach is put forward to analyse the behaviour of both models by means of formal techniques.
