From the Foreword: “This book exemplifies one of the most successful approaches to modeling and simulating [the] new generation of complex systems. FLAME was designed to make the building of large-scale complex systems models straightforward and the simulation code that it generates is highly efficient and can be run on any modern technology. FLAME was the first such platform that ran efficiently on high-performance parallel computers and a version for GPU technology is also available. At its heart, and the reason why it is so efficient and robust is the use of a powerful computational model ‘Communicating X-machines’ which is general enough to cope with most types of modeling problems. As well as being increasingly important in academic research, FLAME is now being applied in industry in many different application areas.
