AnyLogic 7 in Three Days: Paperback Edition Available

AnyLogic 7 in Three Days, the first practical textbook on AnyLogic 7 from AnyLogic developers, is now available in paperback through Amazon.com. The book is written by Ilya Grigoryev, Head of Training at AnyLogic and the author of AnyLogic documentation and AnyLogic training courses. Consider this your first step to learning AnyLogic software. The book is structured around three examples: a consumer market model, an epidemiology model and an airport model. Some theory behind all three modeling methods is also provided, but if you are looking for a deeper dive into the methodologies, check out The Big Book of Simulation Modeling by Andrei Borshchev, The AnyLogic Company CEO. You'll find AnyLogic 7 in Three Days to be the perfect accompaniment to the FREE Personal Learning Edition (PLE) of AnyLogic software. Whether you are a commercial user, student, or professor teaching AnyLogic in the classroom, let this be your guide.

The Big Book of Simulation Modeling, Multimethod Modeling with AnyLogic 6- Reviews!

The Big Book of Simulation Modeling reviews are in and the results are outstanding! Requests have been flooding in for the only book that comprehensively presents all three methods, or paradigms, in simulation modeling: Agent Based, System Dynamics, and Discrete Event. By Hamid R. Darabi – “Wonderful!” January 2, 2014 “I bought the book the moment it was online on Amazon. There are a lot of choices you should make during developing a new model and you can learn the consequence of each from the father of AnyLogic. A must read for anyone who is serious about simulation and modeling using AnyLogic.” By Talal3439 - February 11, 2014 “In my opinion AnyLogic is the best simulation platform. If you are using Anylogic, this is the book that you need.” By Amazon Customer – “Excellent!” February 7, 2014 “Excellent book, must-read for AnyLogic computer modeling software users. Covers practical development of lot of models and modelling approaches.”

“The Big Book of Simulation Modeling" is the only book that comprehensively presents all three methods, or paradigms, in simulation modeling: Agent Based, System Dynamics, and Discrete Event. It explains how to choose the right constructs of the modeling language to create a representation of a real world system that is suitable for risk-free dynamic experiments. The book is based on the modeling languages supported by AnyLogic, the software tool that enables a modeler to utilize all three methods and is the only one with the capability to combine them together in a single model. Written by the creator of the software, this book is the most in-depth information resource on AnyLogic and utilization of multimethod modeling that currently exists. It covers topics from building simple Agent Based models with statecharts to developing data exchange with external programs.

The last (and the biggest) chapter of “The Big Book” available online

In the chapter "Agent based modeling. Technology overview", we present an overview of the technologies and techniques used in agent based modeling. Agent based models are very diverse in architecture, behavior types, number of agents, space types and so on. Other modeling methods (discrete event and system dynamics) are often used inside and outside agents. Although there is no special or standard language for agent based modeling, there are “design patterns” that are common to many agent based models. The chapter includes example models described in the step-by-step manner: Air Defense System, Wildfire (featuring combined discrete-continuous space), and also some discrete space classics: Schelling Segregation and Conway’s Game of Life.

Big Book of AnyLogic has a new chapter


The Big Book of AnyLogic has been recently updated! The chapter "How to build agent based models. Field service example" considers the design process of an agent based model at a very detailed level; from conceptual design to animation and optimization experiments.

Three new book chapters


Three new chapters have been added to the Big Book of AnyLogic: The three methods in simulation modeling, Exchanging data with external world, 3D animation. These chapters show a modeler how to differentiate and successfully use the 3 major simulation methods, how to create high quality interactive 3D animations, and how to build data exchange interfaces to the external world.
