I am taking the six week webinar series to learn how to build models with simulate. So I am new to the software. I have used Stella/ithink previously. Many of my models have variables that need to be caluclated using numerical integration. Is this something that can be done in Simulate. If so will be be covered during th webinar series?.

We weren't planning on covering numerical integration in detail during the six week course, but numerical integration is supported by Forio Simulate.
You can set the DT in you model by using the Model-wide property TimeStep. For example:
M TimeStep = 0.25
This is using Euler’s method for calculating the numerical integration.

Can methods other than Euler be declared?

Unfortunately, models built with the Forio modeling language only supports Euler integration. One option that works is to build a model in Vensim, set the algorithm to RK, then upload the Vensim model. (which is simulate natively in Vensim).
