Optimizing model output using the R project Simile package

Based on the Optimizing model output example using SimileScripting and the Tcllib optimization package math::optimize this post is about reimplmenting the same problem using the R project Simile model package.

Flash videos to get started with Simile

Here are 4 flash videos which demonstrate how to create a simple model (createModel.swf), add in quantitative information to the model's components (quantitativeModel.swf), delete unwanted model components (deleteComponents.swf) and run the model (runningModel.swf). The model I use is the first example model in the book by Grant and Swannack, "Ecological modelling: a common-sense approach to theory and practice" John Wiley & Sons, 2008 My undergraduate and masters students find these types of videos very helpful when learning how to use Simile.

Optimizing model output

This is a simple example of optimizing output of a Simile model using SimileScripting and the Tcllib optimization package math::optimize. The script illustrates how to tackle this kind of problem.
