Examines the core concepts of systems simulation and modeling
Includes a new simulation tool, CASiNO built by the authors
Key features Provides the tools and strategies needed to build simulation models from the ground up rather than providing solutions to specific problems
Offers examples of industry-standard modeling methodology that can be applied in steps to tackle any modeling problem in practice.
Presents code examples to illustrate the implementation process of commonly encountered simulation tasks
The authors give a comprehensive exposition of the core concepts in modeling and simulation, and then systematically address the many practical considerations faced by developers in modeling complex large-scale systems
The authors provide examples from computer and telecommunication networks and use these to illustrate the process of mapping generic simulation concepts to domain-specific problems in different industries and disciplines
