YANG (Yet Another Network Generator - Java) enables you to generate social networks given various social rules observed in the real population. Uses: generate realistic networks to be used in individual-centric models, teaching or benchmarking.
This project supports the development of the Land Use Scenario DevelopeR (LUSDR) software package. LUSDR is an integrated land use and transportation modeling application which uses stochastic methods to simulate multiple possible futures.
The 'runjags' R package and standalone JAGS extension module
This package provides high-level interface utilities for MCMC models via Just Another Gibbs Sampler (JAGS), facilitating the use of parallel (or distributed) processors for multiple chains, automated control of convergence and sample length diagnostics, and evaluation of the performance of a model using drop-k validation or against simulated data. Template model specifications can be generated using a standard lme4-style formula interface to assist users less familiar with the BUGS syntax. A JAGS extension module provides additional distributions including the Pareto family of distributions, the DuMouchel prior and the half-Cauchy prior.
