SWARM is a software package for multi-agent simulation of complex systems that is being developed by the Swarm Development Group (SDG).
Swarm is intended to be a useful tool for researchers in a variety of disciplines, especially artificial life. The basic architecture of Swarm is the simulation of collections of concurrently interacting agents: with this architecture, we can implement a large variety of agent based models.
