Successful build of MOOSE 3.0.0 'Kheer Kadam' on Cygwin under Windows 7. This makes it possible to run MOOSE on Windows

Welcome to Moose
MOOSE is the Multiscale Object-Oriented Simulation Environment.
It is designed to simulate neural systems ranging from subcellular components and biochemical reactions to complex models of single neurons, circuits, and large networks. MOOSE can operate at many levels of detail, from stochastic chemical computations, to multicompartment single-neuron models, to spiking neuron network models.

MOOSE is a simulation environment, not just a numerical engine. It provides the essentials by way of object-oriented representations of model concepts and fast numerical solvers, but its scope is much broader.
It has a scripting interface with Python, graphical displays with Matplotlib, PyQt, and OpenGL, and support for many model formats. These include SBML, NeuroML, GENESIS kkit and cell.p formats, HDF5 and NSDF for data writing.

About MOOSE version 3.0.0, Kheer Kadam

The Kheer Kadam release is the first of a new series of MOOSE releases.

Kheer Kadam is a sweet from Bengal. It has a soft white, dry and sometimes powdery outer layer with a pink or white spongy interior soaked in syrup. Try one!

There are several big changes in 3.0.0:

  •    - Major feature developments for multiscaling, including deterministic reaction-diffusion calculations, a substantial set of classes for Leaky Integrate-and-Fire neuronal networks,and abstract plastic synapses.
  •    - Extensive example-based documentation in a new MOOSE Cookbook.
  •    - An entirely new and faster messaging system.
  •    - An evolution of the Python interface to use object arrays.
  •    - Automatic scheduling of all objects upon creation.

This release also has a reworked version of the GUI, which is currently in alpha but can be used to run and build kinetic models.
