Description & Coverage
Description:

Discrete event simulation environments have desirable features and components now driving researchers to develop and enhance existing environments.

The Handbook of Research on Discrete Event Simulation Environments: Technologies and Applications provides a comprehensive overview of theory and practice in simulation systems. A leading publication in this growing field, this Handbook of Research offers researchers, academicians, and practitioners progressive findings in simulation methodologies, modeling, standards, and applications.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Agent-Based Modeling
  • Coded wireless communication systems
  • Computer network analysis and design
  • Computer simulation applications in construction
  • Discrete-event simulation
  • Implementation of a discrete event system
  • Simulation environments
  • Simulation systems for decision support
  • Verification and validation of simulation models
  • Visual algorithm simulation
Reviews & Statements

The goal of this book is not to look at simulation from traditional perspectives, but to illustrate the benefits and issues that arise from the application of simulation within other disciplines. This book focuses on major breakthroughs within the technological arena, with particular concentration on the accelerating principles, concepts and applications.
