Above left is a minimal parameter file. In this case, the simulation contains only one object, a motor complex. The outcome of the simulation can be seen by clicking on the picture on the right. The complex is freely diffusion inside a empty box.The parameter file defines what is necessary to run this simulation:
nbiter 100tells the simulation to perform 100 iterations
dt 0.01sets the time step to 0.01 seconds.
record 50tells the simulation to record 50 frames.
boxsize 10 10defines the dimension (w, h) of the box in micrometers,
cxmax 1defines the number of motor complexes,
cxdiffdefines the diffusion coefficient of the complexes in micrometers square per seconds.
You can run a similar simulation simply by dowloading the file config.cym on your own computer, by clicking on the link below the animation. (see here for instructions on installing and running the program).
