Abstract: The thesis concerns the agent-based computational economics topic on the example of company sizes generation. After a brief explanation of the methodology, an already existing Robert Axtell’s model is described. Based on it, two own approaches considering employees’ effort levels monitoring are subsequently suggested and fully implemented in JAVA. Resulting data are finally examined for power law fitting, since a broad spectrum of empirical studies observed this distribution in real world
companies’ data.
