Explores wide-ranging applications of modeling and simulationtechniques that allow readers to conduct research and ask "Whatif??"

Principles of Modeling and Simulation: A MultidisciplinaryApproach is the first book to provide an introduction tomodeling and simulation techniques across diverse areas of study.Numerous researchers from the fields of social science,engineering, computer science, and business have collaborated onthis work to explore the multifaceted uses of computationalmodeling while illustrating their applications in commonspreadsheets.

The book is organized into three succinct parts:

Principles of Modeling and Simulation provides a briefhistory of modeling and simulation, outlines its many functions,and explores the advantages and disadvantages of using models inproblem solving. Two major reasons to employ modeling andsimulation are illustrated through the study of a specific problemin conjunction with the use of related applications, thus gaininginsight into complex concepts.

Theoretical Underpinnings examines various modelingtechniques and introduces readers to two significant simulationconcepts: discrete event simulation and simulation of continuoussystems. This section details the two primary methods in whichhumans interface with simulations, and it also distinguishes themeaning, importance, and significance of verification andvalidation.

Practical Domains delves into specific topics related totransportation, business, medicine, social science, and enterprisedecision support. The challenges of modeling and simulation arediscussed, along with advanced applied principles of modeling andsimulation such as representation techniques, integration into theapplication infrastructure, and emerging technologies.

With its accessible style and wealth of real-world examples,Principles of Modeling and Simulation: A MultidisciplinaryApproach is a valuable book for modeling and simulation coursesat the upper-undergraduate and graduate levels. It is also anindispensable reference for researchers and practitioners workingin statistics, mathematics, engineering, computer science,economics, and the social sciences who would like to furtherdevelop their understanding and knowledge of the field.
