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:




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


Functions for initializing a simulation with new agents.


Functions related to neighbors and neighbor calculations.


Functions for performing complex statistical modeling or analysis.


Functions related to random number generation


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
