I'm making up an assignment for students here to begin learning about agent modeling. Looking through the MASON applet is a good starting point. http://cs.gmu.edu/~eclab/projects/mason/applet/ Looks like the "About" portions are blank (?) Does this "About" information exist? If not, maybe the students here can research the background of these projects on the applet page, and write up "About" backgrounds. These background descriptions can be sent to you, and added to the applet.
