Computer Simulation and Modelling Francis Neelamkavil, Department of Computer Science, Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland This book provides a detailed coverage of modelling and simulation of systems with the aid of computers. It looks at all the important aspects of the subject including the concepts, techniques, strengths, and weaknesses. Both analogue and/or digital simulation of continuous and discrete systems are discussed, but special emphasis is placed on digital computer simulation of discrete systems. The importance of verification and validation is stressed, and the role of microprocessors and computer graphics in simulation is highlighted. Modelling and simulation techniques are illustrated through several examples and references to the applications of simulation in various disciplines are given. Computer printouts of simulation examples in Pascal, CSMP, GPSS and SIMSCRIPT are presented throughout the book. The summary and exercises given at the end of each chapter are designed to encourage reading and 'learning by doing'. Suitable as an undergraduate or postgraduate text for courses in computer science, engineering, natural science, operations research, management science, and social science, the book will also be of interest to practitioners in management and industry who are engaged in modelling and simulation projects. Contents Introduction and overview Systems Models Model validation Basic probability and statistics Random numbers and random variates Discrete system simulation General-purpose simulation system (GPSS) SIMSCRIPT Simulation experiments in practice Continuous system simulation Trends in simulation
