This is a suite for simulating an Agent Based Model that captures the evolutionary dynamics of a population in a multidimensional space.
ABMEv.jl is a package aimed at simulating the eco-evolutionary dynamics of a population in a multidimensional space, at the individual level.
Individuals are characterised by a set of traits in some combination of evolutionary spaces. An evolutionary space can represent for example a geographical landscape, a trait space, or genetic structure. Individuals experience three elementary events : **birth, death, mutation (or migration)**.
The user can provide **any birth and death functions**, which should depend on the system state and the individuals' trait. Together with the mutation process, this defines the dynamics of the system.
ABMEv.jl provides a **numerical laboratory** for eco-evolutionary dynamics, supplying
- flexible types for **individuals**, which can
- evolve over any combination of space,
- store ancestors trait,
- flexible types for **evolutionary spaces**, that can consist of multidimensional **discrete or continuous domains**, as well as **graphs**,
- the possibility to use **callback functions** to save the state of the system at any time step
- several **algorithms** for the simulations (Gillepsie, CFM),
- **utility functions** to analyse simulation results.
## Installation
Open Julia in your favorite REPL and type the following
using Pkg;
This will download latest version from git repo and download all dependencies.
To check out from an other branch than master, one has to do the trick
using Pkg;
## Getting started
Check out the great documentation if you want to use the advance features of ABMEv.jl. Otherwise, you can content yourself with the simple tutorial prodived below
## A first tutorial
We provide here a tutorial a simple scenario, where the population is structured over the vertices of a graph, where each vertex selects for an optimal trait value $`\theta_i \in \{-1,1\}`$.
Let's import ABMEv.jl, and LightGraphs.jl
using ABMEv
using LightGraphs.jl
Now define the trait space, and the graph (i.e. the abstraction of the landscape). We choose a star graph with 7 vertices.
nodes = 7
g = star_graph(nodes)
landscape = GraphSpace(g)
θ = [rand([-1,1]) for i in 1:nodes]
traitspace = RealSpace(1)
evolspace = (landscape,traitspace)
Now let's define the birth and death functions. Individuals are characterised by their position on the graph and the adaptive trait.
K = 1000
b(X,t) = 1 - 0.5 * (θ[X[1]] - X[1])^2
d(X,Y,t) = (X[1] Y[1]) / K
Define the mutation processes. Assuming a random walk of length 1, you should specify `nothing`.
D = [nothing,5e-1]
mu = [1.,1.]
Simulation time, and callback function
tend = 200
t_saving_cb = collect(range(0.,tend,length=300))
cb() = Dict("N" => size(w))
Initial conditions
myagents = [Agent(evolspace,[rand(1:nodes),randn() * D[2]]) for i in 1:K]
And off we go
w0 = World(myagents,evolspace,p,0.)
sim = run!(w0,Gillepsie(),tend,b,d,dt_saving=2.)
Let's plot some cool stuff.
Population size

Population trait over time
D = (1e-2,)
mu = [.1]
NMax = 2000
tend = 1500
dm = d([0],[0],0.);bm = 1.
p = Dict{String,Any}();@pack! p = dm,bm,D,mu,NMax
myagents = [Agent(myspace,(1e-2 * randn(Float64),)) for i in 1:K0]
w0 = World(myagents,myspace,p,0.)
sim = run!(w0,CFM(),tend,dt_saving = 10,b,d)
