Tangram - II

TANGRAM-II is an environment for computer and communication system modeling and experimentation, developed for research and educational purposes. It provides a general user interface based on an object oriented paradigm and a variety of solvers to obtain the measures of interest. The environment also includes modules useful for computer network experimentation, traffic modeling and multimedia tools to aid in the modeling process and collaborative work. The TANGRAM-II manual explains the tool in detail and includes several examples to help the user.
