Definition

Operators in the GAML language are used to compose complex expressions. An operator performs a function on one, two, or n operands (which are other expressions and thus may be themselves composed of operators) and returns the result of this function.

Most of them use a classical prefixed functional syntax (i.e. operator_name(operand1, operand2, operand3), see below), with the exception of arithmetic (e.g. +, /), logical (and, or), comparison (e.g. >, <), access (., [..]) and pair (::) operators, which require an infixed notation (i.e. operand1 operator_symbol operand1).

The ternary functional if-else operator, ? :, uses a special infixed syntax composed with two symbols (e.g. operand1 ? operand2 : operand3). Two unary operators (- and !) use a traditional prefixed syntax that does not require parentheses unless the operand is itself a complex expression (e.g. - 10, ! (operand1 or operand2)).

Finally, special constructor operators ({...} for constructing points, [...] for constructing lists and maps) will require their operands to be placed between their two symbols (e.g. {1,2,3}, [operand1, operand2, ..., operandn] or [key1::value1, key2::value2... keyn::valuen]).

With the exception of these special cases above, the following rules apply to the syntax of operators:

  • if they only have one operand, the functional prefixed syntax is mandatory (e.g. operator_name(operand1))
  • if they have two arguments, either the functional prefixed syntax (e.g. operator_name(operand1, operand2)) or the infixed syntax (e.g. operand1 operator_name operand2) can be used.
  • if they have more than two arguments, either the functional prefixed syntax (e.g. operator_name(operand1, operand2, ..., operand)) or a special infixed syntax with the first operand on the left-hand side of the operator name (e.g. operand1 operator_name(operand2, ..., operand)) can be used.

All of these alternative syntaxes are completely equivalent.

Operators in GAML are purely functional, i.e. they are guaranteed to not have any side effects on their operands. For instance, the shuffle operator, which randomizes the positions of elements in a list, does not modify its list operand but returns a new shuffled list.


Priority between operators

The priority of operators determines, in the case of complex expressions composed of several operators, which one(s) will be evaluated first.

GAML follows in general the traditional priorities attributed to arithmetic, boolean, comparison operators, with some twists. Namely:

  • the constructor operators, like ::, used to compose pairs of operands, have the lowest priority of all operators (e.g. a > b :: b > c will return a pair of boolean values, which means that the two comparisons are evaluated before the operator applies. Similarly, [a > 10, b > 5] will return a list of boolean values.
  • it is followed by the ?: operator, the functional if-else (e.g. a > b ? a + 10 : a - 10 will return the result of the if-else).
  • next are the logical operators, and and or (e.g. a > b or b > c will return the value of the test)
  • next are the comparison operators (i.e. >, <, <=, >=, =, !=)
  • next the arithmetic operators in their logical order (multiplicative operators have a higher priority than additive operators)
  • next the unary operators - and !
  • next the access operators . and [] (e.g. {1,2,3}.x > 20 + {4,5,6}.y will return the result of the comparison between the x and y ordinates of the two points)
  • and finally the functional operators, which have the highest priority of all.

Using actions as operators

Actions defined in species can be used as operators, provided they are called on the correct agent. The syntax is that of normal functional operators, but the agent that will perform the action must be added as the first operand.

For instance, if the following species is defined:

species spec1 {
int min(int x, int y) {
return x > y ? x : y;
}
}

Any agent instance of spec1 can use min as an operator (if the action conflicts with an existing operator, a warning will be emitted). For instance, in the same model, the following line is perfectly acceptable:

global {
init {
create spec1;
spec1 my_agent <- spec1[0];
int the_min <- my_agent min(10,20); // or min(my_agent, 10, 20);
}
}

If the action doesn't have any operands, the syntax to use is my_agent the_action(). Finally, if it does not return a value, it might still be used but is considering as returning a value of type unknown (e.g. unknown result <- my_agent the_action(op1, op2);).

Note that due to the fact that actions are written by modelers, the general functional contract is not respected in that case: actions might perfectly have side effects on their operands (including the agent).

Operators


date

Possible uses:

  • string date string ---> date
  • date (string , string) ---> date
  • date (string, string, string) ---> date

Result:

converts a string to a date following a custom pattern. The pattern can use "%Y %M %N %D %E %h %m %s %z" for outputting years, months, name of month, days, name of days, hours, minutes, seconds and the time-zone. A null or empty pattern will parse the date using one of the ISO date & time formats (similar to date('...') in that case). The pattern can also follow the pattern definition found here, which gives much more control over what will be parsed: https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/api/java/time/format/DateTimeFormatter.html#patterns. Different patterns are available by default as constant: #iso_local, #iso_simple, #iso_offset, #iso_zoned and #custom, which can be changed in the preferences

Special cases:

  • In addition to the date and pattern string operands, a specific locale (e.g. 'fr', 'en'...) can be added.
date d <- date("1999-january-30", 'yyyy-MMMM-dd', 'en');

Examples:

date den <- date("1999-12-30", 'yyyy-MM-dd');

dbscan

Possible uses:

  • dbscan (list, float, int) ---> list<list>

Result:

returns the list of clusters (list of instance indices) computed with the dbscan (density-based spatial clustering of applications with noise) algorithm from the first operand data according to the maximum radius of the neighborhood to be considered (eps) and the minimum number of points needed for a cluster (minPts). Usage: dbscan(data,eps,minPoints)

Special cases:

  • if the lengths of two vectors in the right-hand aren't equal, returns 0

Examples:

list<list> var0 <- dbscan ([[2,4,5], [3,8,2], [1,1,3], [4,3,4]],10,2); // var0 equals [[0,1,2,3]]

dead

Possible uses:

  • dead (agent) ---> bool

Result:

true if the agent is dead (or null), false otherwise.

Examples:

bool var0 <- dead(agent_A); // var0 equals true or false

degree_of

Possible uses:

  • graph degree_of unknown ---> int
  • degree_of (graph , unknown) ---> int

Result:

returns the degree (in+out) of a vertex (right-hand operand) in the graph given as left-hand operand.

Examples:

int var1 <- graphFromMap degree_of (node(3)); // var1 equals 3

See also: in_degree_of, out_degree_of,


delete_file

Possible uses:

  • delete_file (string) ---> bool

Result:

delete a file or a folder

Examples:

bool delete_file_ok <- delete_file(["../includes/my_folder"];

det

Same signification as determinant


determinant

Possible uses:

  • determinant (matrix) ---> float

Result:

The determinant of the given matrix

Examples:

float var0 <- determinant(matrix([[1,2],[3,4]])); // var0 equals -2

Possible uses:

  • float diff float ---> float
  • diff (float , float) ---> float

Result:

A placeholder function for expressing equations


diff2

Possible uses:

  • float diff2 float ---> float
  • diff2 (float , float) ---> float

Result:

A placeholder function for expressing equations


directed

Possible uses:

  • directed (graph) ---> graph

Result:

the operand graph becomes a directed graph.

Comment:

WARNING / side effect: this operator modifies the operand and does not create a new graph.

See also: undirected,


direction_between

Possible uses:

  • topology direction_between container<unknown,geometry> ---> float
  • direction_between (topology , container<unknown,geometry>) ---> float

Result:

A direction (in degree) between a list of two geometries (geometries, agents, points) considering a topology.

Examples:

float var0 <- my_topology direction_between [ag1, ag2]; // var0 equals the direction between ag1 and ag2 considering the topology my_topology

See also: towards, direction_to, distance_to, distance_between, path_between, path_to,


direction_to

Same signification as towards


directory

Possible uses:

  • directory (any) ---> directory

Result:

casts the operand in a directory object.


disjoint_from

Possible uses:

  • geometry disjoint_from geometry ---> bool
  • disjoint_from (geometry , geometry) ---> bool

Result:

A boolean, equal to true if the left-geometry (or agent/point) is disjoints from the right-geometry (or agent/point).

Special cases:

  • if one of the operand is null, returns true.
  • if one operand is a point, returns false if the point is included in the geometry.

Examples:

bool var0 <- polyline([{10,10},{20,20}]) disjoint_from polyline([{15,15},{25,25}]); // var0 equals false 
bool var1 <- polygon([{10,10},{10,20},{20,20},{20,10}]) disjoint_from polygon([{15,15},{15,25},{25,25},{25,15}]); // var1 equals false
bool var2 <- polygon([{10,10},{10,20},{20,20},{20,10}]) disjoint_from {25,25}; // var2 equals true
bool var3 <- polygon([{10,10},{10,20},{20,20},{20,10}]) disjoint_from polygon([{35,35},{35,45},{45,45},{45,35}]); // var3 equals true

electre_DM

Possible uses:

  • electre_DM (list<list>, list<map<string,unknown>>, float) ---> int

Result:

The index of the best candidate according to a method based on the ELECTRE methods. The principle of the ELECTRE methods is to compare the possible candidates by pair. These methods analyses the possible outranking relation existing between two candidates. An candidate outranks another if this one is at least as good as the other one. The ELECTRE methods are based on two concepts: the concordance and the discordance. The concordance characterizes the fact that, for an outranking relation to be validated, a sufficient majority of criteria should be in favor of this assertion. The discordance characterizes the fact that, for an outranking relation to be validated, none of the criteria in the minority should oppose too strongly this assertion. These two conditions must be true for validating the outranking assertion. More information about the ELECTRE methods can be found in [http://www.springerlink.com/content/g367r44322876223/ Figueira, J., Mousseau, V., Roy, B.: ELECTRE Methods. In: Figueira, J., Greco, S., and Ehrgott, M., (Eds.), Multiple Criteria Decision Analysis: State of the Art Surveys, Springer, New York, 133--162 (2005)]. The first operand is the list of candidates (a candidate is a list of criterion values); the second operand the list of criterion: A criterion is a map that contains fives elements: a name, a weight, a preference value (p), an indifference value (q) and a veto value (v). The preference value represents the threshold from which the difference between two criterion values allows to prefer one vector of values over another. The indifference value represents the threshold from which the difference between two criterion values is considered significant. The veto value represents the threshold from which the difference between two criterion values disqualifies the candidate that obtained the smaller value; the last operand is the fuzzy cut.

Special cases:

  • returns -1 is the list of candidates is nil or empty

Examples:

int var0 <- electre_DM([[1.0, 7.0],[4.0,2.0],[3.0, 3.0]], [["name"::"utility", "weight" :: 2.0,"p"::0.5, "q"::0.0, "s"::1.0, "maximize" :: true],["name"::"price", "weight" :: 1.0,"p"::0.5, "q"::0.0, "s"::1.0, "maximize" :: false]],0.7); // var0 equals 0

Examples:

file road_shapefile <- file("../includes/roads.shp");

Will return true every time the current_date matches with this frequency

Comment:

the value of the every operator depends on the cycle. It can be used to do something every x cycle.Used to do something at regular intervals of time. Can be used in conjunction with 'since', 'after', 'before', 'until' or 'between', so that this computation only takes place in the temporal segment defined by these operators. In all cases, the starting_date of the model is used as a reference starting point

Examples:

if every(2#cycle) {write "the cycle number is even";} 
else {write "the cycle number is odd";}
(date('2000-01-01') to date('2010-01-01')) every (#month) // builds an interval between these two dates which contains all the monthly dates starting from the beginning of the interval
reflex when: every(2#days) since date('2000-01-01') { .. }
state a { transition to: b when: every(2#mn);} state b { transition to: a when: every(30#s);} // This oscillatory behavior will use the starting_date of the model as its starting point in time

Annals of Mathematical Statistics, vol. 38, pp. 325--339]) on lower and upper probability distributions. The first operand is the list of candidates (a candidate is a list of criterion values); the second operand the list of criterion: A criterion is a map that contains seven elements: a name, a first threshold s1, a second threshold s2, a value for the assertion "this candidate is the best" at threshold s1 (v1p), a value for the assertion "this candidate is the best" at threshold s2 (v2p), a value for the assertion "this candidate is not the best" at threshold s1 (v1c), a value for the assertion "this candidate is not the best" at threshold s2 (v2c). v1p, v2p, v1c and v2c have to been defined in order that: v1p + v1c <= 1.0; v2p + v2c <= 1.0.; the last operand allows to use a simple version of this multi-criteria decision making method (simple if true)
