Modelling and Simulation Cover Image

This book provides a balanced presentation of modelling and simulation activity for both Discrete Event Dynamic Systems and Continuous Time Dynamic Systems. The authors establish a clear distinction between the activity of modelling and that of simulation, maintaining this distinction throughout.

Full Description
This book provides the reader with a balanced & integrated presentation of the modelling & simulation activity for both Discrete Event Dynamic Systems (DEDS) & Continuous Time Dynamic Systems (CTDS). Unconstrained by discipline boundaries, this book presents the fundamentals necessary to understand the many important facets of the modeling & simulation methodology. For example, a novel project-oriented approach clearly reveals the dependency of model structure & granularity on project goals.Written for students taking a first course in modelling & simulation at either the senior undergraduate & junior graduate levels, this interdisciplinary presentation provides an essential foundation on the topic. It is also ideally suited for self-study by professionals & others who require insight into the features & potential of this rapidly evolving problem solving paradigm.
