Example: A simple financial market with zero intelligence agents, see textbook (download it here) for more inspiration - extending theoretical (microeconomic) models into discrete agent-based domain. Do both result in the same findings? Examples: Cournot oligopoly with simple learning, Cartels, implementation in NetLogo, see textbook (download it here) for more inspiration - topics on Behavioral Finance, empirical or simulation-based approach, see videos about the BF topic here and here, and read about interesting behavioural patterns and anomalies here.
