In this segment we list a few suggestions of how to get started with Solstice. As the platform offers rich functionality what is relevant and optimal will vary for different users.
Solstice is an economic network simulation framework. The primary outcomes are quantitative analyses of the behavior of economic systems under uncertainty. It can be used both as a production tool in a portfolio / risk management context or as a research tool. The objective is to provide a performant, easily usable, extensible simulation framework to support economic network analysis.
This page is the root of the Solstice User Documentation. Mathematical documentation is provided elsewhere. Code documentation is embedded in the code and is provided within the distribution.
