PEDSIM is a microscopic pedestrian crowd simulation system. The PEDSIM library allows you to use pedestrian dynamics in your own software. Based on pure C++/STL without additional packages, it runs virtually on every operating system. The PEDSIM Demo Application gives you a quick overview of the capabilities, and is a starting point for your own experiments. PEDSIM is suitable for use in crowd simulations (e.g. indoor evacuation simulation, large scale outdoor simulations), where one is interested in output like pedestrian density or evacuation time. Since the quality of the individual agent's trajectory is high, PEDSIM can be used for creating massive pedestrian crowds in movies.
The Shared Scientific Toolbox is a library that facilitates development of efficient, modular, and robust scientific/distributed computing applications in Java. It features multidimensional arrays with extensive linear algebra and FFT support, an asynchronous, scalable networking layer, and advanced class loading, message passing, and statistics packages.
Dapper, or "Distributed and Parallel Program Execution Runtime", is a tool for taming the complexities of developing for large-scale cloud and grid computing, enabling the user to create distributed computations from the essentials: the code that will execute, along with a dataflow graph description. It supports rich execution semantics, carefree deployment, a robust control protocol, modification of the dataflow graph at runtime, and an intuitive user interface.
DAC (Dynamic Agent Computations) is a novel software framework designed for implementing multi-agent systems that describe parallel computations. The whole system is easy to configure and extend, but also very efficient and scalable. Moreover, the technology that is used (JMS, Cajo, JMX) ensures high reliability of the framework, which can be used in a production environment.
StarCluster is a utility for creating traditional computing clusters used in research labs or for general distributed computing applications on Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). It uses a simple configuration file provided by the user to request cloud resources from Amazon and to automatically configure them with a queuing system, an NFS shared /home directory, passwordless SSH, OpenMPI, and ~140GB scratch disk space. It consists of a Python library and a simple command line interface to the library. For end-users, the command line interface provides simple intuitive options for getting started with distributed computing on EC2 (i.e. starting/stopping clusters, managing AMIs, etc). For developers, the library wraps the EC2 API to provide a simplified interface for launching/terminating nodes, executing commands on the nodes, copying files to/from the nodes, etc.
Regress Pro is scientific and industrial software that can be used to study experimental data coming from spectroscopic ellipsometers or reflectometers. The program has been developed mainly looking to the application of thin film measurement in semiconductor industry. The software is suitable both to determine the thickness of the layers and to determine the optical properties of dielectric materials.
GarlicSim is a platform for writing, running, and analyzing simulations. It is general enough to handle any kind of simulation: physics, game theory, epidemic spread, electronics, etc. GarlicSim aims to eliminate the need to write any boilerplate code that isn't directly related to the phenomenon you're simulating. GarlicSim defines a new format for simulations, called a simulation package and often abbreviated as simpack. The simpack contains all the code that define the simulated system, and is simply a Python package which defines a few special functions according to the GarlicSim simpack API. Simpack code may also be written in C. All of the tools that GarlicSim provides can be used to run simulations of all kinds of different domains.
