Composable Geo-referenced Multi-resolution Multi-agent CA-based DEVS, KIB, and PDE Models
Hessam Sarjoughian (Arizona State University) and Chao Zhang (Arizona State University; The inclusion of geometric abstractions elevates non-spatial automata to have the expressiveness necessary for understanding and development of natural and built systems. Indeed, the scope and types of questions asked by domain experts are continually rising due to the varied and intertwined structures and dynamics of hybrid systems. This is especially evident when heterogeneous models are needed to solve complex problems that in turn benefit from using different modeling formalisms and simulation frameworks. In this paper, an approach targeting the development of composable, heterogeneous, multi-resolution, spatiotemporal models formalized according to modular, cellular automata and multi-agent models grounded in parallel DEVS, PDE, and Geo-referenced Knowledge Interchange Broker is proposed. This approach to modeling and simulation is demonstrated by an integrated framework enabled by the DEVS-Suite and OpenModelica simulators and supported by the Functional Mock-up Interface. A multi-scale model with simulations for human breast cancer biology highlights the developed approach and framework.)
