File Information

Diffusion based molecular communication is an energy efficient paradigm that can interconnect nanomachines. The research activities on Molecular Communication via Diffusion (MCvD) heavily depend on simulations to verify the proposed methods. The existing simulation tools can not be directly used for MCvD systems since diffusion channel has different characteristics compared to classical communication channels. Therefore, an end-to-end MolecUlar CommunicatIoN (MUCIN) Simulator for MCvD systems that supports 1-D to 3-D environments, sending consecutive symbols, receptor reaction probability, extendable modulation and filtering modules is developed.
For Fast simulation enhancement refer to the following paper

For Modulations you may refer to the following papers

Bug in the file <CORE_sim_diffusion_3d_P2S_FAST.m> is fixed.
Thanks to Martin Damrath.

function [ res_p_window ] = eval_phit_window()

multiplier for 3D environment was missing, it is fixed.
