Abstract:The modeling and simulation of physical systems is of key importance in many areas of science and engineering; and thus can benefit from high-quality software tools. In previous research we have demonstrated how functional programming can form the basis of an expressive language for causal hybrid modeling and simulation. There is a growing realization; however; that a move toward non-causal modeling is necessary for coping with the ever increasing size and complexity of modeling problems. Our goal is to combine the strengths of functional program ming and non-causal modeling to create a powerful; strongly typed fully declarative modeling language that provides modeling and simulation capabilities beyond the current state of the art: in particular; support for highly structurally dynamic systems. Additionally; we think our approach could serve as a semantical framework for studying modeling and simulation languages supporting structural dynamism; and maybe even as a core language in systems where the surface syntax is more conven tional. Although our work is still in its very early stages; we believe that this paper clearly articulates the need for improved modeling languages and shows how functional programming techniques can play a pivotal role in meeting this need.
