This paper introduces an environment for reproducible computational experiments developed as part of the ``Madagascar'' software package. To reproduce the example experiments in this paper, you can download Madagascar from At the moment, the main Madagascar interface is the Unix shell command line so that you will need a Unix/POSIX system (Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris, etc.) or Unix emulation under Windows (Cygwin, SFU, etc.)

Our focus, however, is not only on particular tools we use in our research but also on the general philosophy of reproducible computations.
