  1. RePast Tutorial IV Week 8

  2. Today’s agenda • More on the GUI mode… • Probes • How to create property descriptors • How to create custom actions • Introducing the batch mode • How to use parameters and parameter files • How to collect data • ExperIPD

  3. Probes • Probes allow the user to view and manipulate single agents • Require the display surface to be “probeable” • Variables become available through introspection using the get-set-methods (with set-methods necessary for changes)

  4. How to create property descriptors • To adjust parameters at startup or when the simulation is paused • Can be applied to both models and agents • Setup through the pre-defined descriptors variable of SimpleModel

  5. How to create property descriptors (cont.) • Drop-down list: publicvoid setup() { super.setup(); Hashtable h1 = new Hashtable(); h1.put(new Integer(0), "Von Neumann"); h1.put(new Integer(1), "Moore"); ListPropertyDescriptor pd = new ListPropertyDescriptor("Type", h1); descriptors.put("Type", pd); } publicvoid setType(int type) { this.type = type; }

  6. How to create property descriptors (cont.) • Numerical slider: publicvoid setup() { super.setup(); RangePropertyDescriptor d = new RangePropertyDescriptor("NumAgents", 10, 100, 20); descriptors.put("NumAgents", d); } publicvoid setNumAgents(int numAgents) { this.numAgents = numAgents; }

  7. How to create custom actions • Modify the simulation while it is running • Setup through modelManipulator variable of SimpleModel • Works for buttons, check boxes, sliders, and arbitrary Java components

  8. How to create custom actions (cont.) • modelManipulator.addButton("Clear Space",new ActionListener() {publicvoid actionPerformed(ActionEvent e){ space.clear(); }}); • modelManipulator.addSlider("Slider", 0, 100, 10, new SliderListener()); • modelManipulator.addCheckBox("Show/Hide",new CheckBoxListener(), false); • modelManipulator.addComponent(Component c);

  12. Separating GUI and batch modes Model extends SimpleModel GraphIPD,GridIPD ExperIPD ModelGUI extends Model ModelBatch extends Model

  13. Subclassing a batch model class ModelBatchextends Model{ Batch variables (data recorder) setup() { super.setup(); params = ... } buildModel() { super.buildModel(); create data recorder } step() { super.step(); record data } main() { init.loadModel(m, "params.txt", true); } } class Model extends SimpleModel { model variables setup() buildModel() step() main() } Batch mode Parameter file

  14. How to use parameters • Different purpose depending on context: • Batch mode: allow variables to be changed through parameter files • GUI mode: show the variables in the control panel publicvoid setup() {super.setup(); params = {"NumPlayers", "PALLC", "PTFT", "PATFT", "PALLD", "PAdapt"};}

  15. How to use parameters (cont.) • Requires accessor methods: publicvoid setup() {super.setup(); params = {"Variable", ...}}publicdouble getVariable() {returnvalue;} publicvoid setVariable(doublevalue) {this.value = value;} Setters only required to allow modification

  16. How to use parameter files • Different effects depending on context: • GUI mode: set initial values • Batch mode: allow to run sweeps • Usually defined in a file named params.txt • Runs the simulation with values of 10, 20, and 30: runs: 1 Variable { start: 10 end: 30incr: 10 }

  17. Multiple parameters: Nesting How to use parameter files (cont.) runs: 1 Food { start: 10 end: 30 incr: 10 { runs: 10 MaxAge { start: 0 end: 40 incr: 1 } } } runs: 10 Food { start: 10 end: 30 incr: 10 } MaxAge { start: 10 end: 30 incr: 10 }

  18. How to use parameter files (cont.) • Additional keywords: • setdefines a single numerical value as a constant for the entire collection of batch runs. • set_booleandefines a boolean value (true / false). • set_stringdefines a string value (without any white space). • set_list,set_boolean_list, set_string_listdefine a space-separated list of values. A batch simulation will iterate through the list.

  19. How to collect data • Recording of simulation states to: • archive simulation runs • further process the data into third-party packages (e.g. Excel, Stata, SPSS, SAS, ...) • Output format: Text files (comma, space or tab delimited)

  20. How to collect data (cont’d) • Prepare for the measurements in buildModel() • Determine the duration of the simulations: setStoppingTime(n); • Create the data recorder with output to file data.txt: recorder = new DataRecorder(“./data.txt”,this); • Add numeric streams using introspection: recorder.createNumericaDataSource(“X”,this,”computeX”); • The output can be formatted with x number of digits before the decimal point, and y after …createNumericaDataSource(“X”,this,”computeX”,x,y);

  21. How to collect data (cont’d) • Using introspection requires a method delivering the values • It is also possible to use inner classes (see the Repast How-To Documentation) • The data recorder has to be told to record and to write the data to file: recorder.record(); recorder.writeToFile(); • The user can change the data delimiter: recorder.setDelimiter(“ “);
