Per Bak and Kim Sneppen Model

The Per Bak and Kim Sneppen evolution model is one of the most simple and at the same time more elegant ways to show self-organised criticality.

The above demo is part of a vaster set of animations illustrating complex systems that I’m in the process of coding in javascript and P5. I had coded a Bak-Sneppen model a long time ago in Java, but this is nicer.

If you would like to see a particular example coded, or want to contribute, head on to github and either fork the dave.complexity or make your suggestions in the issues.
