SimLAB, a software environment for creating simulators directly from computer-readable physics models, is based on the following concept creating physical systems simulators should be as simple as describing the underlying physics to a colleague. Rather than programming in a conventional programming language, a SIMLAB user expresses physics models and thus simulators directly in terms of the concepts, quantities, and equations familiar to a scientist or engineer. The benefits of the SimLAB approach include 1 reducing the time and effort required to create simulators, 2 providing more understandable and reliable simulators, and 3 support for more sophisticated simulators, e.g., for multiple domain problems, which have proved intractible in the past.
