Handbook of Dynamic System Modeling

by

Handbook of Dynamic System Modeling Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The topic of dynamic models tends to be splintered across various disciplines, making it difficult to uniformly study the subject. Moreover, the models have a variety of representations, from traditional mathematical notations to diagrammatic and immersive depictions. Collecting all of these expressions of dynamic models, the Handbook of Dynamic System Modeling explores a panoply of different types of modeling methods available for dynamical systems.

Featuring an interdisciplinary, balanced approach, the handbook focuses on both generalized dynamic knowledge and specific models. It first introduces the general concepts, representations, and philosophy of dynamic models, followed by a section on modeling methodologies that explains how to portray designed models on a computer. After addressing scale, heterogeneity, and composition issues, the book covers specific model types that are often characterized by specific visual- or text-based grammars. It concludes with case studies that employ two well-known commercial packages to construct, simulate, and analyze dynamic models.

A complete guide to the fundamentals, types, and applications of dynamic models, this handbook shows how systems function and are represented over time and space and illustrates how to select a particular model based on a specific area of interest.

Book News Annotation:

Sixty international academics and researchers contribute 37 chapters demonstrating the wide variety of modeling methods available for dynamic systems. Included are pseudocode, diagrams, and methods for representing, simulating, and analyzing models. Coverage includes an introductory overview of general issues, representations, and philosophy of dynamic models; modeling methodologies defined as approaches to the modeling process; executing models on a computer once models have been designed; multiobject and system issues of scale, heterogeneity, and composition; specific model types characterized by specific visual or text-based grammars; application domains; and case studies using two well-known commercial packages that support dynamic model construction, simulation, and analysis. The text is suitable as a reference guide, or in the classroom as a primary text or secondary reference, for those in mathematics, computer science, science and engineering disciplines.

Synopsis:

This interdisciplinary guide explores various types of modeling methods available for dynamical systems. It begins with the general concepts, representations, and philosophy of dynamic models, followed by a section on modeling methodologies that explains how to portray designed models on a computer. After addressing scale, heterogeneity, and composition issues, the handbook covers specific model types that are often characterized by specific visual- or text-based grammars. It concludes with case studies that employ Modelica and Simulink to construct, simulate, and analyze dynamic models. Each chapter includes mathematical descriptions, pseudocode, and diagrams.
