Population Model with Connections
This is the secod model in a sequence of three - Agent Based Population Model with Connections, an extension of the Generic Agent Based Population model. The base model functionality has been extended with networks of connections and periodical moves. The agent type PersonWithConnections extends Person by adding connections, periodic moves, losses of long-distance connections and acquiring new short-distance connections. The function birth() of the base type has been extended to implement inheriting mother's connections by children. The model starts with a distance based network where an agent is linked to all agents within a certain range. When a child is born, he inherits his mother's short distance connections with a given probability. Later, when a person moves to a different location, he, with a high probability, loses his long distance connections and builds new connections with neighbors. The mother-child connections (implemented using custom links) survive moves.
