Abstract

Gives a short digression of the application of supercomputer technologies in social studies, primarily regarding technical realization of the large-scale agent-focused models (AFM). The instrument allows to describe behaviour of many fragments in а complex system thanks to the immense increase in the capacity of computers. As a result a dream of many researchers to learn to explain the macro-phenomenon on the basis of behaviour of its components has began to be embodied in a reality. For example, physicists, able to describe behaviour of elementary particles, have created computer imitation of activities of a big ensemble of such particles and began to study its behaviour using the computer, instead of in life. Thus appeared a concept of an artificial reality. In the article we consider the experience of foreign scientists and experts in starting AFM on supercomputers, and also the example AFM, developed in CEMI (RAS), and analyze the stages and methods of effective display of a calculating core of the multi-agent system on the architecture of a modern supercomputer.
