• Agent-based modelling of monopsony and the minimum wage 

    Green, Peter
    A simple supply and demand argument apparently shows that minimum wage policy, ironically, hurts the workers it is ostensibly aimed at helping, by increasing their chances of unemployment. Stigler (1946) claims that ...
  • An introduction to agent-based modelling 

    Green, Peter
    Agent-based models give us a way to model the aggregation of heterogeneous agent s, a feat that is nearly impossible in a deductive framework. Because these models cannot be solved exactly, they will often be explored using ...
  • Optimising survey effort to monitor environmental variables: A case study using New Zealand kiwifruit orchards 

    MacLeod, Catriona J; Green, Peter; Tompkins, Daniel M; Benge, Jayson; Moller, Henrik
    Environmental monitoring is increasingly used to assess spatial and temporal trends in agricultural sustainability, and test the effectiveness of farm management policies. However, detecting changes in environmental variables ...
  • Towards a Fast Bayesian Climate Reconstruction 

    Green, Peter
    To understand global climate prior to the availability of widespread instrumental data, we need to reconstruct temperatures using natural proxies such as tree rings. For reconstructions of a temperature field with multiple ...
