Abstract:  Repast HPC is a platform for creating agent-based models (ABMs) in any high-performance computing environment that implements parallelism using MPI. Repast HPC provides a simple framework in which users can construct models without knowledge of MPI or other low-level details of parallel computing, and has extended the power of HPC to a wide range of users in the ABM community. However, even though knowledge of MPI is not required, the nature of the parallel environment requires careful thought about how the agent interactions within the model will be structured.
