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.

Introduces readers to the field of cyber modeling and simulation and examines current developments in the US and internationally This book provides an overview of cyber modeling and simulation (M&S) developments. Using scenarios, courses of action (COAs), and current M&S and simulation environments, the author presents the overall information assurance process, incorporating the people, policies, processes, and technologies currently available in the field. The author ties up the various threads that currently compose cyber M&S into a coherent view of what is measurable, simulative, and usable in order to evaluate systems for assured operation. An Introduction to Cyber Modeling and Simulation provides the reader with examples of tools and technologies currently available for performing cyber modeling and simulation. It examines how decision-making processes may benefit from M&S in cyber defense. It also examines example emulators, simulators and their potential combination. The book also takes a look at corresponding verification and validation (V&V) processes, which provide the operational community with confidence in knowing that cyber models represent the real world. This book: Explores the role of cyber M&S in decision making Provides a method for contextualizing and understanding cyber risk Shows how concepts such the Risk Management Framework (RMF) leverage multiple processes and policies into a coherent whole Evaluates standards for pure IT operations, "cyber for cyber," and operational/mission cyber evaluations—"cyber for others" Develops a method for estimating both the vulnerability of the system (i.e., time to exploit) and provides an approach for mitigating risk via policy, training, and technology alternatives Uses a model-based approach An Introduction to Cyber Modeling and Simulation is a must read for all technical professionals and students wishing to expand their knowledge of cyber M&S for future professional work.

This Festschrift is published in honor of Edward A. Lee, Robert S. Pepper Distinguished Professor Emeritus and Professor in the Graduate School in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley, USA, on the occasion of his 60th birthday. The title of this Festschrift is “Principles of Modeling" because Edward A. Lee has long been devoted to research that centers on the role of models in science and engineering. He has been examining the use and limitations of models, their formal properties, their role in cognition and interplay with creativity, and their ability to represent reality and physics. The Festschrift contains 29 papers that feature the broad range of Edward A. Lee’s research topics; such as embedded systems; real-time computing; computer architecture; modeling and simulation, and systems design.

This book reports on advanced theories and methods in three related fields of research: applied physics, system science and computers. It is organized in two main parts, the first of which covers applied physics topics, including lasers and accelerators; condensed matter, soft matter and materials science; nanoscience and quantum engineering; atomic, molecular, optical and plasma physics; as well as nuclear and high-energy particle physics. It also addresses astrophysics, gravitation, earth and environmental science, as well as medical and biological physics. The second part focuses on advances in system science and computers, exploring automatic circuit control, power systems, computer communication, fluid mechanics, simulation and modeling, software engineering, data structures and applications of artificial intelligence among other areas. Offering a collection of contributions presented at the 1st International Conference on Applied Physics, System Science and Computers (APSAC 2016), the book bridges the gap between applied physics and electrical engineering. It not only to presents new methods, but also promotes collaborations between different communities working on related topics at the interface between physics and engineering, with a special focus on communication, data modeling and visualization, quantum information, applied mechanics as well as bio and geophysics.
