Title: Visual agent-based model development with repast simphony.

Abstract

Repast is a widely used, free, and open-source agent-based modeling and simulation toolkit. Three Repast platforms are currently available, each of which has the same core features but a different environment for these features. Repast Simphony (Repast S) extends the Repast portfolio by offering a new approach to simulation development and execution. This paper presents a model of physical infrastructure network interdependency as an introductory tutorial and illustration of the visual modeling capabilities of Repast S.

  • Repast is a widely used, free, and open-source, agent-based modeling and simulation toolkit. Three Repast version 3 platforms are currently available, each of which has the same core features but with differing environments for these features. Repast Simphony (Repast S) extends the Repast 3 portfolio by offering a new approach to simulation development and execution. Repast S's new simulation development capabilities include direct support for integrating existing (i.e., legacy) file-based models into agent-based simulations. This paper reviews related work on model integration and data exchange; introduces the Repast S's legacy model integration system; and discusses how the new system canmore » be used to integrate existing file-based models, either agent-based or nonagent-based, into agent models.« less
  • This paper is motivated by the need to design model validation strategies for epidemiological disease-spread models. We consider both agent-based and equation-based models of pandemic disease spread and study the nuances and complexities one has to consider from the perspective of model validation. For this purpose, we instantiate an equation based model and an agent based model of the 1918 Spanish flu and we leverage data published in the literature for our case- study. We present our observations from the perspective of each implementation and discuss the application of model-selection criteria to compare the risk in choosing one modeling paradigmmore » to another. We conclude with a discussion of our experience and document future ideas for a model validation framework.« less
