This is a web-based executable extensible Modelica book that has been created to allow students and practitioners easy access to learn Modelica, modeling, simulation, analysis, optimization, etc., allowing editing of models and running simulations in the book from a web page.
Work has been started on adding 3D visualization/animation and graphical model editing capabilities to a future version of this book.
The book is open for submissions of material for on-line publication, each part labeled with the corresponding authors. All material is open source, but different parts can have different open source licenses and copyrights. The Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License is the default open source license if nothing else is specified. An editorial board of academic professionals handle submissions, improve the quality, and when needed provide material in relevant areas.
The book is published by Linköping University Electronic Press in the series ”Linköping University Interdisciplinary Studies” with ISSN 1650-9625. Citations of the whole book or separate chapters are possible. Pdf snapshots of the book contents will be taken regularly and published on-line in addition to the live editable/executable version.
