    Joshua Mohr: IMG Your Imagination, Your Fingerprint



    When I was in grad school, a teacher told our workshop that if a published novel is 300 pages, the writer had to generate 1,200 along the way. I... Continue »

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Modelling and simulation provides invaluable support for the design and evaluation of dynamic systems, offering multi-faceted tools that are unconstrained by discipline boundaries. This fully updated and expanded new edition of Modelling and Simulation presents a practical introduction to the fundamental aspects of modelling and simulation. It provides the necessary foundations both for those wishing to learn about this methodology and also for those who have a need to apply it in their work. Illustrative examples are drawn from projects formulated within the domains of both discrete-event dynamic systems and continuous-time dynamic systems. Topics and features: Presents a project-oriented (i.e., goal-based) perspective on modelling and simulationDescribes an updated novel activity based conceptual modelling framework (the ABCmod framework) for discrete-event dynamic systemsIncludes a new chapter that presents a novel world view, the Activity-Object world view, which eases the translation of a conceptual model specification in the ABCmod framework into a simulation programContains numerous illustrative examples and useful algorithms, in addition to exercises and projects at the end of most chaptersIncludes a primer on probability, a concise guide to the GPSS programming environment and an overview of relevant MATLAB features in the appendicesProvides supplementary software and teaching support material at an associated website, including lecture slides and a methodology for organizing student projectsStudents at the senior undergraduate or junior graduate level will find this hands-on textbook/reference to be an essential guide to the fundamentals of modelling and simulation. It is also ideally suited for self-study by professionals seeking insight into the vast potential of this rapidly evolving problem-solving paradigm.

Synopsis:

Written for students taking a first course in modelling and simulation at either the senior undergraduate or junior graduate levels, this interdisciplinary presentation provides an essential foundation on the topic. It is also ideally suited for self-study by professionals and others who require insight into the features and potential of this rapidly evolving problem-solving paradigm.
