Agent-based models (ABMs) are ubiquitous in research and industry. Currently, simulating ABMs involves at least some imperative (step-by-step) computer instructions. An alternative approach is declarative programming, in which a set of requirements is described at a high level of abstraction. Here I present the a fully declarative methodology for the automated construction of simulations for ABMs. In this framework, called “Nanoverse,” logic for ABM simulations is encapsulated into predefined… CONTINUE READING
