The 5th edition of Ross’s Simulation continues to introduce aspiring and practicing actuaries, engineers, computer scientists and others to the practical aspects of constructing computerized simulation studies to analyze and interpret real phenomena. Readers learn to apply results of these analyses to problems in a wide variety of fields to obtain effective, accurate solutions and make predictions about future outcomes.

This latest edition features all-new material on variance reduction, including control variables and their use in estimating the expected return at blackjack and their relation to regression analysis. Additionally, the 5th edition expands on Markov chain monte carlo methods, and offers unique information on the alias method for generating discrete random variables.

By explaining how a computer can be used to generate random numbers and how to use these random numbers to generate the behavior of a stochastic model over time, Ross’s Simulation, 5th edition presents the statistics needed to analyze simulated data as well as that needed for validating the simulation model.

  • Additional material on variance reduction, including control variables and their use in estimating the expected return at blackjack and their relation to regression analysis
  • Additional material and examples on Markov chain Monte Carlo methods
  • Unique material on the alias method for generating discrete random variables
  • Additional material on generating multivariate normal vectors

About the Author:

Dr. Sheldon M. Ross is a professor in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the University of Southern California. He received his Ph.D. in statistics at Stanford University in 1968. He has published many technical articles and textbooks in the areas of statistics and applied probability. Among his texts are A First Course in Probability, Introduction to Probability Models, Stochastic Processes, and Introductory Statistics. Professor Ross is the founding and continuing editor of the journal Probability in the Engineering and Informational Sciences. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics, a Fellow of INFORMS, and a recipient of the Humboldt US Senior Scientist Award.

Review:

"I have always liked Ross’ books, as he is simultaneously mathematically rigorous and very interested in applications. The biggest strength I see is the rare combination of mathematical rigor and illustration of how the mathematical methodologies are applied in practice. Books with practical perspective are rarely this rigourous and mathematically detailed. I also like the variety of exercises, which are quite challenging and demanding excellence from students." --Prof. Krzysztof Ostaszewski, Illinois State University
