Fast prototyping of epidemiological models based on reaction equations. Analyze the ODEs analytically or numerically, or run/animate stochastic simulations on networks/well-mixed systems. Simple compartmental models of infectious diseases are useful to investigate effects of certain processes on disease dissemination. Using pen and paper, quickly adding/removing compartments and transition processes is easy, yet the analytical and numerical analysis or stochastic simulations can be tedious to set up and debug—especially when the model changes (even slightly).
Simple and interactive network visualization in Python. Network visualization is an indispensable tool for exploring and communicating patterns in complex systems. Netwulf offers an ultra-simple API for reproducible interactive visualization of networks directly from a Python prompt or Jupyter notebook. As a research tool, its purpose is to allow hassle-free quick interactive layouting/styling for communication purposes.
