CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Simulation is the art of using tools – physical or conceptual models, or
computer hardware and software, to attempt to create the illusion of reality.
The discipline has in recent years expanded to include the modelling of systems
that rely on human factors and therefore possess a large proportion of
uncertainty, such as social, economic or commercial systems. These new
applications make the discipline of modelling and simulation a field of dynamic
growth and new research.
Stanislaw Raczynski outlines the considerable and promising research that is
being conducted to counter the problems of uncertainty surrounding the methods
used to approach these new applications. It aims to stimulate the reader into
seeking out new tools for modelling and simulation. Examines the
state-of-the-art in recent research into methods of approaching new
applications in the field of modelling and simulation Provides an introduction
to new modelling tools such as differential inclusions, metric structures in
the space of models, semi-discrete events, and use of simulation in parallel
optimization techniques Discusses recently developed practical applications:
for example the PASION simulation system, stock market simulation, a new fluid
dynamics tool, manufacturing simulation and the simulation of social structures
Illustrated throughout with a series of case studies
Modelling and Simulation: The Computer Science of Illusion will appeal to
academics, postgraduate students, researchers and practitioners in the
modelling and simulation of industrial computer systems. It will also be of
interest to those using simulation as an auxiliary tool.
