Modeling and Simulation Fundamentals: Theoretical Underpinnings
and Practical Domains

Description:    An insightful presentation of the key concepts, paradigms, and applications of modeling and
                simulation

                Modeling and simulation has become an integral part of research and development across many
                fields of study, having evolved from a tool to a discipline in less than two decades. Modeling and
                Simulation Fundamentals offers a comprehensive and authoritative treatment of the topic and
                includes definitions, paradigms, and applications to equip readers with the skills needed to work
                successfully as developers and users of modeling and simulation.

                Featuring contributions written by leading experts in the field, the book's fluid presentation builds
                from topic to topic and provides the foundation and theoretical underpinnings of modeling and
                simulation. First, an introduction to the topic is presented, including related terminology, examples
                of model development, and various domains of modeling and simulation. Subsequent chapters
                develop the necessary mathematical background needed to understand modeling and simulation
                topics, model types, and the importance of visualization. In addition, Monte Carlo simulation,
                continuous simulation, and discrete event simulation are thoroughly discussed, all of which are
                significant to a complete understanding of modeling and simulation. The book also features
                chapters that outline sophisticated methodologies, verification and validation, and the importance
                of interoperability. A related FTP site features color representations of the book's numerous figures.

                Modeling and Simulation Fundamentals encompasses a comprehensive study of the discipline and is
                an excellent book for modeling and simulation courses at the upper-undergraduate and graduate
                levels. It is also a valuable reference for researchers and practitioners in the fields of computational
                statistics, engineering, and computer science who use statistical modeling techniques.
