PHASE(Parallel High-performence Agent-based Simulation Environment)
Demo: Game Of Life
2019.3 Version 1.0
1.1 Introduction This tutorial will introduce a series of examples demonstrating several ways to build an Agent Based Modeling of HPC model. Its purpose is to showcase a set of features included in the Platform Toolkit and to provide a working demo of how to build models that use these features in different ways. Discuss some of the features related to the platform infrastructure, such as how to set and change model parameters, get and record analog output, and implement different forms of random number generation. In particular, it is convenient to construct an ABM model in which agents interact according to certain structural constraints, including spatial placement and network connectivity. 1.2 Requirement This tutorial is for anyone who wants to learn more about the platform and is proficient in the ABM model. For those who are not familiar with the HPC environment, it is mainly for people who understand the basics of Agent-Based Modeling (ABM) and are familiar with the X10 language grammar.
2 Demo: Game Of Life
2.1 Introduction GameOfLife is the most famous set of rules in the Cellular Automaton/Automata (the idea of the rules can be traced back to von Neumann, alias " GameOfLife"). The state of death or viability of each cell is determined by the eight cells surrounding it.The rules are as follows： 1."Small population": If there are less than 2 live neighbors, any living cells will die. 2."Normal": If there are 2 or 3 live neighbors, any living cells will continue to live. 3."Excessive population": If there are more than 3 live neighbors, any living cells will die. 4."Breeding": If there are exactly 3 live neighbors, any dead cells will survive. 2.2 Construct steps 2.2.1 Step 1: Agent Add all the attributes of the entity in the Agent.x10 file. The existing location and status attributes are added. Other attributes are added after AddCode. In this example, location acquisition, state acquisition, neighbor acquisition, etc. are added as required by the model. 2.2.2 Step 2: Grid The grid is set in the Grid.x10 file. In this example, the grid is initially set as 10 both horizontal and vertical, for a total of 100 grids. 2.2.3 Step 3: Event The simulation event design is performed in the EventSequence.x10 file. In this Demo, four events are set, which are life game initialization (init()), get agent neighbor information (AgentNeighborState()), and life game evolution according to rules (Interactive( )), agent information display (Display ()) four events, at the same time according to the scheduling steps written to the corresponding step. 2.2.4 Step 4: Model Schedule design in the Model.x10 file to run the specified event at the specified time. 2.2.5 Step 5: DataCollection Data collection can occur in any given event or at any time, but you need to customize the data collection event. 1、Class instantiation 2、Class implementation 2.2.6 Step 6: Run Count the time in the main function in the Run.x10 file and set the relevant parameters in the Setting.x10 file.。
