The Role of Model Integration in Complex Systems Modelling: by Manish Patel, Sylvia Nagl

By Manish Patel, Sylvia Nagl

Model integration – the method in which diverse modelling efforts will be introduced jointly to simulate the objective procedure – is a center expertise within the box of platforms Biology. within the paintings offered right here version integration used to be addressed at once taking melanoma structures for example. An in-depth literature evaluate used to be conducted to survey the version kinds and kinds at the moment being utilised. This was once used to formalise the most demanding situations that version integration poses, specifically that of paradigm (the formalism on which a version is based), concentration (the real-world method the version represents) and scale.

A two-tier version integration approach, together with a knowledge-driven method of handle version semantics, was once constructed to take on those demanding situations. within the first step a singular description of versions on the point of behaviour, instead of the appropriate mathematical or computational foundation of the version, is constructed via distilling a collection of summary sessions and houses. those can appropriately describe version behaviour and consequently describe concentration in a manner that may be built-in with behavioural descriptions of different types. within the moment step this behaviour is decomposed into an agent-based approach through translating the types into neighborhood interplay rules.

The ebook presents an in depth and hugely built-in presentation of the strategy, encompassing either its novel theoretical and sensible elements, so as to let the reader to essentially use it on their version integration wishes in educational study settings. The textual content is self-supporting. it's also an in-depth present bibliography to suitable study papers and literature.
