DEVS is a discrete-event formalism that allows a hierarchical and modular description of the models. DEVS can describe behavioral models (atomic) or structural (coupled). Cell-DEVS allows modeling systems that can be represented as executable cell spaces. Details about the DEVS formalism can be found in:
