Boomer project is a general purpose modeling and simulation program.

It provides the estimation of parameter values by non-linear weighted least squares regression or the simulation of complex systems of differential equations.

Parameter estimation can be by normal or Bayesian methods. A comprehensive list of weighting schemes is included. The model to be analyzed can be entered as a system of integrated equations or as a system of differential equations.

Differential equations are solved by a classical fourth order Runge-Kutta method, a fourth order Runge-Kutta-Gill method, a four/five Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg method, an Adams predictor-corrector method, or Gear's method for stiff equations.

Simulation with random error in parameters or data are also possible. A batch run can be repeated many times to assist in Monte Carlo type studies.


Untar the downloaded file with

tar -xvzf fboomer312a.tar.gz

As an administrator user you can move boomer to your PATH and thereby invoke the program globally. The command:

sudo cp boomer /usr/bin/boomer

Enter password

from your download folder (where the new version of boomer resides) will put boomer in a directory usually included in your PATH variable. This can be checked with the command:

echo $PATH

I haven't checked this with Linux/Fedora yet but something similar should work. I only get limited time on my younger son's game machine.
