I am working in SDML, Java and RePast. On this page you will find a few models/demonstrations which may be downloaded and used for teaching/educational material.
SDML release versions 3.4 and above have user interface capability. The following two modules demonstrate the use of user inteface types and predicates: prettypicture.sdm (Shift + left click to download) demonstrates how to make different kinds of pictures (lines, circles, rectangles etc.) and display them in a window; exchange.sdm (Shift + left click to download) provides a template module for making cellular automata models and a market model example.
The culture model is a java application based on a model of cultural transmission described in ch.
7, The Complexity of Cooperation, (1997) by Robert Axelrod. Simulation experiments with this model demonstrate the formation of stable regions of cultural homogeneity. To run this model, you will need the Java 2 SDK.
I, and colleagues at CPM, have created several template models for development of advanced RePast and JESS Java capabilities. These files are reasonably well commented.
Please visit my teaching page to find some RePast models more useful for demonstration and teaching.
