Towards an EDSL to Enhance Good Modelling Practice for Non-linear Stochastic Discrete Dynamical Models - Application to Plant Growth Models

Benoit Bayol, Yuting Chen, Paul-Henry Cournède

Abstract

A computational formalism is presented that structures a C++ library which aims at the modelling, simulation and statistical analysis of stochastic non-linear discrete dynamical system models. Applications concern the development and analysis of general plant growth models.
