each mi acts as a discount rate (the transmission from the great-grand father to child, for instance). And the value of i goes from 1 to 6, including the different family members such as great-grandfather, grandfather, father, mother, uncle and aunt. The variables are explained in Table 1.
|Table 1: Varibles and their descriptions used in the cultural capital transmission function|
|cl ck||knowledge cultural capital of the child|
|clca||artistic cultural capital of the child|
|psck||the inborn characteristic of knowledge cultural capital of the child|
|psca||the inborn characteristic of artistic cultural capital of the child|
|clik||knowledge cultural capital of member i|
|clia||artistic cultural capital of member i|
|ra||influence rate from artistic cultural capitals to knowledge cultural capitals|
|rk||influence rate from knowledge cultural capitals to artistic cultural capitals|
|m0||cultural transmission rate from school education|
|mi||cultural transmission rate from family member i|

|Table 2: The result of the experiments|
|Parameter||The result of Multi-Agent Based Simulation|
|People who transmit cultural capital to child||father, uncle, mother, aunt|
|Effect by mother||28%, if maternal grandfather is a successful candidate.|
|Effect by aunt||6%, if father in aunt's married family is a successful candidate.|
|Influence rate from artistic cultural capital to knowledge cultural capital||100%|
|Influence rate from knowledge cultural capital to artistic cultural capital||0%|
|Transmission method of cultural capital||Both knowledge cultural capital and artistic cultural capital are transmitted to the child from parents.|
