Computational Model:

The examples below were written using the Processing framework. Processing is a multi-platform framework, based on a simplified version of Java, which enables the user to construct models quickly. These examples were written using Processing version 2.2.1 and the author recommends that this version be downloaded. They are archived examples and should be unzipped into your 'Processing Sketches' folder. Please see the Processing Website for further details on how to download and install Processing. Please note that these examples will not work with the most recent version of Processing (v3) as the new version has significant changes to the framework.
