The agent-based model used to generate numerical results in this publication was written and processed in MathWorks® MATLAB R2019b.
Additional raw data produced from the code and the post-processing methods used to generate specific results presented in figures are provided in zip folders with the designated names of said figures in their titles. Descriptions and instructions are generally provided in the "Run... .m" scripts provided in each folder.
A ReadMe file is available with instructions for running the code, and subsequently post-processing the output data.
The code provided represents the base-level code used in parameters sweeps for the final results presented. Various modifications were made to this code in order to implement aspects such as periodic boundary conditions, modulated surface agent activity level, etc. in investigation of specific things (e.g., unconfined self-propelled particle trajectory behavior, or activity's influence on global raft shape, respectively). Codes containing these specialty modifications are available in zip folders, also provided.
