New neuronal population model gif_pop_psc_exp #895
The model represents the pooled activity a population of (any number of) neurons in a single NEST node, accurately treating stochastic finite size effects. The algorithm and a range of simulations of single neuron vs. population activity are published in the journal article :
Schwalger T, Deger M, Gerstner W (2017) Towards a theory of cortical columns: From spiking neurons to interacting neural populations of finite size. PLoS Comput Biol 13(4): e1005507. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pcbi.1005507
The model is related to the flexible single neuron model gif_psc_exp, hence the name gif_pop_psc_exp. Using this population model, one can build models of interconnected populations, etc, as discussed in , which can be simulated efficiently.
Somehow the travis builds are failing. As far as I can see, the problem is this:
However, I cannot reproduce this error when building on my machine. Could it be that there is a different version of GSL on the travis-CI build system? Any ideas how to proceed?
This looks pretty good to me, once you get the GSL guard in place. I just have a few comments, see below. Also you should PEP8ify
Thanks for the changes. You are still missing the GSL guards, so it's still failing on Travis. And I also have a few additional remarks.
