Modeling civil violence: an agent-based computational approach.

Abstract:

:This article presents an agent-based computational model of civil violence. Two variants of the civil violence model are presented. In the first a central authority seeks to suppress decentralized rebellion. In the second a central authority seeks to suppress communal violence between two warring ethnic groups.

  • Constitutive nitric oxide synthase activation is a significant route for nitroglycerin-mediated vasodilation.

    abstract::The physiological effects of nitroglycerin as a potent vasodilator have long been documented.
