Simulation support

IMBS scholar Steve Doubleday has created a site as a first step towards distributed simulations and simulations that can be more easily replicated. It shows two examples of simulations you can download and run (one of them is a City Networks model built for the Tsallis q historical cities and city-sizes project, phase II, where we include city sizes, growth dynamics, trade networks, and geographic placements in the process modeling. The two examples are run using Java Web Start. Both examples make use of the RepastJ agent-based simulation framework.
