Title: High Level Mathematical Modeling and Simulation with Modelica and the OpenModelica Open Source Implementation
Speaker: Peter Fritzson
Place: Room 621/622, GP South (Building 78)
Time: 11:00am seminar
Modelica is a general declarative equation-based
object-oriented language for continuous and
discrete-event modeling of physical systems for the
purpose of efficient simulation. The language unifies
and generalizes previous object-oriented modeling
languages. The Modelica modeling language and technology
is being warmly received by the world community in
modeling and simulation. It is bringing about a
revolution in this area, based on its ease of use,
visual design of models with combination of lego-like
predefined model building blocks, its ability to define
model libraries with re-usable components and its
support for modeling and simulation of complex
applications involving parts from several application
In this talk we present the Modelica language and the open-source OpenModelica environment including an electronic notebook system with the DrModelica self-instructing course material, and the free MathModelica Lite graphic editor for graphic modeling.
We also briefly present the Openmodelica Eclipse plugin, the compiler self-bootstrapping strategy, and Eclipse support for model-driven development.
We also briefly mention Biological applications such as biochemical pathways modeled using the free BioChem library with SBML primitives.
