HASH Standard Library

HASH provides a set of useful functions to help simplify simulation construction through a standard library, hstd. The Python language environment also provides access to a wide array of scientific Python packages.

You can contribute to the HASH standard library by submitting pull requests to our open source repo.

Using HASH Standard Library Functions

Types of functions in the HASH Standard Library

The HASH Standard Library contains the following types of functions:

Category

Description

Spatial

Functions describing and modifying the location of agents in x,y,z space.

Init

Functions for initializing a simulation with new agents.

Neighbors

Functions related to neighbors and neighbor calculations.

Statistical

Functions for performing complex statistical modeling or analysis.

Random

Functions related to random number generation

Agent

Functions for helping build and use agents.

Using the HASH Standard Library

To call a standard library function, use the hash_stblib object followed by the function name, for example:

function behavior(state, context) {
let distance = hstd.distanceBetween(agentA, agentB)
}

Scientific Python

HASH provides access to a number of scientific Python packages which can be utilized in simulations. Read more >
