This interactive simulator is designed to be and currently used as a research tool. The tool simulates 2D clusters configurations of nanomagnets and computes the hysteresis curve due to thermal noise and interaction between the nanomagnetic dots. In general, the simulator has two modes of operation: single run and multiple runs. In single run mode, the output will be the structure simulated, an Excel file containing snapshots of the system at dot flipping times, and the Hysteresis curve. In multiple runs mode, the simulator will output the structure simulated, the Excel file, and a normalized flipping histogram of each dot as well as an overlay of all the histograms together. Finally, the default values of the simulator are realistic.
