-====== Auryn spiking neural network simulator ​======+====== ​Welcome to Auryn ======
  
-Auryn is a simulator for spiking neural networks with plastic synapses. It is free and open source software optimized to simulate spiking neural networks with plasticity. ​Some examples ​are Vogels et al., Science, 2011; Zenke et al., Nature Communications,​ 2015; [[examples:​start#​from_published_work|and more]]. +Auryn is a simulator for spiking neural networks with plastic synapses.

-As a spiking neural network simulator Auryn is complementary to other simulators such as [[http://​www.nest-initiative.org|NEST]] and [[http://​briansimulator.org/​|Brian]]. Instead of focusing on large-scale simulations or ease of model development,​ Auryn'​s main focus lies on simulation speed to efficiently simulate small or medium sized network models with plasticity over extended periods of simulated time (hours to days). To that end, Auryn is optimized to run efficiently on shared memory machines and small clusters. Auryn is written in C++ and uses MPI for parallel execution. Moreover, it supports Intel'​s [[manual:​xeonphi|Xeon Phi]] architecture.+As a spiking neural network simulator Auryn is complementary to other simulators such as [[http://​www.nest-initiative.org|NEST]] and [[http://​briansimulator.org/​|Brian]].
