A state-of-the-art guide for the implementation of distributedsimulation technology.

The rapid expansion of the Internet and commodity parallelcomputers has made parallel and distributed simulation (PADS) a hottechnology indeed. Applications abound not only in the analysis ofcomplex systems such as transportation or the next-generationInternet, but also in computer-generated virtual worlds formilitary and professional training, interactive computer games, andthe entertainment industry.

In this book, PADS expert Richard M. Fujimoto provides softwaredevelopers with cutting-edge techniques for speeding up theexecution of simulations across multiple processors and dealingwith data distribution over wide area networks ,including theInternet. With an emphasis on parallel and distributed discreteevent simulation technologies, Dr. Fujimoto compiles andconsolidates research results in the field spanning the last twentyyears, discussing the use of parallel and distributed computers inboth the modeling and analysis of system behavior and the creationof distributed virtual environments.

While other books on PADS concentrate on applications, Parallel andDistributed Simulation Systems clearly shows how to implement thetechnology. It explains in detail the synchronization algorithmsneeded to properly realize the simulations, including an in-depthdiscussion of time warp and advanced optimistic techniques.Finally, the book is richly supplemented with references, tablesand illustrations, and examples of contemporary systems such as theDepartment of Defense's High Level Architecture (HLA), which hasbecome the standard architecture for defense programs in the UnitedStates.
