RegMAS (Regional Multi Agent Simulator) is a spatially explicit multi-agent model framework, designed for long-term simulations of effects of government policies over agricultural systems (e.g. farm sizes, incomes, land use). RegMAS uses a profit-maximization algorithm to derive farmers' behaviors. Using RegMAS, researchers can write regional-specific models, adapting the pool of activities and resources to their specific region.
ParseGenBank is a minimalistic, incremental, event-driven GenBank Flat File Format parser. It aims to efficiently produce events for keywords, features, qualifiers, and coding data. It does not attempt to parse the contents of feature or qualifier data, but provides a framework on which such a system can be built.
Overslack is a slackline simulator/game. A configurable model world containing a slackline, a slacker, and ground is visualized, and its time evolution is calculated while the user controls the slacker using the mouse. Just as with real slacklining, there is no predefined goal, but it keeps track of the time you stand on the line.
The Item Response Theory (IRT) library is a set of functions to estimate the items and abilities from the responses of subjects to a questionnaire. The IRT models supported are the logistic model, the nominal response model, the graded response model, and smoothing by penalization and kernel. The project also hosts rirt, a package for the R Project for Statistical Computing, and eirt, an add-in for Excel.
Gridder is a suite of portlets designed to enable users to submit jobs in a grid environment. It comes with a full manual and includes documentation produced during development, which addresses topics related to grid and cluster setup and configuration. It seamlessly integrates with OGCE, as it was the focus during the whole development process. The portlets are designed to simplify job submission tasks with end-user friendliness in mind, and a well-defined separation of concerns from the user point of view (tasks and jobs) and from the technical point of view (the architecture and design).
