Nova Founder Dr. Richard Salter and UC Berkeley’s Dr. Wayne Getz lead intensive using Nova to study optimal movement pathways over heterogeneous landscapes containing resources, competitors, and enemies.
Dr. Lauren Riva develops mobile apps using Nova for St. Mark’s MOOC which has enrollees from public and private schools representing high schoolers, graduate students, and professors from Thailand, the UK, Israel, Ethiopia, and Canada, as well as the US.

Click to visit the Novaol Model Library
Auto-generated NovaOL examples can be sampled from the Nova Desktop Model Library entries on this site.
Seamlessly integrating system dynamics, spatial, and agent-based modeling paradigms with a flexible scripting
language that supports classroom instruction, rapid prototyping, and parameter optimization.
Graphical Modeling Interface
Quickly build models using familiar drawing tools and visual “stock-and-flow” components on a canvas.
Dynamic Output Displays
Customizable graph and tabular display components embedded on the canvas display model outputs in real-time which can be copied and saved.
Any model can be used as a submodel with input and output ‘pins’, simplifying and expanding the complexity of models possible.
Model Library and Community
Nova comes with numerous models which can be saved, stored, and shared online for
distributed use in multiple contexts.
