ORCHESTRA (developer)

What is different with ORCHESTRA?

  • ALL model equations are given as input in text format at run time, so NO model equation hidden in the source code.
  • The structure of model definitions is hierarchical and Object Oriented.
  • Users can construct new models by defining new model objects and keywords.
  • ORCHESTRA is written in Java and runs on Windows, Linux, Solaris, and Apple OSX.

What are the advantages?

  • ORCHESTRA is very flexible as it can easily be extended with new chemical physical biological process models.
  • The physical separation of calculation solver and model definitions not only results in a small and efficient calculation solver executable (350 kb)
  • but also in very compact model definitions (object database 30 kb).
  • Model calculations are transparent, as all model equations are available in text format and not hidden within the source code.
  • The small size of the calculation solver makes it very suitable for parallel processing on modern multi core hardware.
