Description

Recently, different research teams used Cellular models for the analysis of environmental systemsusing Cellular models. Some of these techniques are based on Cellular Automata, which have some problemsconstraining its power, usability and feasibility for studying large complex systems. In other cases, the CellularAutomata have been combined with the DEVS (Discrete-Event Systems Specifications) formalism, which requiresexpertise in advanced programming techniques, visualization, distributed computing, etc. Instead, theCell-DEVS formalism and the CD++ toolkit Cell-DEVS simplify the construction of complex cellular modelsby allowing simple and more intuitive model specification. We present the definition of different models, focusingon how to define such applications using Cell-DEVS methodology.
