Simulation Model Design and Execution: Building Digital Worlds

Appropriate for courses in Simulation Model Design and Execution in IE and CS. Fishwick offers the first text to cover all three areas of simulation-Model Design, Model Execution, and Execution Analysis-in one source. He focuses on model design (using an extension of object- oriented design called multimodeling) and algorithms for serial and parallel model execution. Also covered is the SimPack simulation toolkit, with a full chapter devoted to using SimPack programs.
