This is the book that the simulation industry is missing! This is an introduction and reference for Real-Time Distributed Simulation. Distributed Simulation is the term describing connecting... More > people, equipment and simulators together in a synthetic environment. If you are involved with any type of simulator and want to connect it to another system, then you need to have this book. The book describes terrain in simulation, 3-D model structure, Simulator Qualification Levels, Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS), High Level Architecture (HLA), Validation, Verification and Accreditation (VV&A) as well as providing a methodology and process for planning and implementing a Distributed Simulation project. The book also provides an invaluable Distributed Simulation Agreements Template. This is a very useful book for anyone involved with distributed simulation and was written by someone that has spent nearly 20 years in the industry: building simulators and connecting them to other simulators.< Less

This executive briefing is an introduction to the technology of computer simulation for middle and senior management in the logistics, distribution and warehousing industries. It outlines... More > capabilities and potentials at several levels and may also be of use to sales and marketing personnel. Simulation technology is defined and explained. Hardware and software requirements are reviewed and a brief history of simulation is presented along with examples of past successful use. Then, with reference to the supply chain and the warehousing industry, possible uses of simulation are detailed in several modalities (purposes) and at several levels. The benefits of simulation as an analytical tool are reviewed, followed by a section that describes industrial lessons learned from failed simulation projects and the requirements for success that emerge from those lessons. The briefing concludes with a short foray into the possible future of the technology.< Less

Distributed Multi-Domain Network Survivability By Feng Xu

As user services continue to grow, there is a growing need to improve network recovery across multiple domains. This is a complex problem due to scalability and privacy concerns across domains. Hence... More > multi-domain survivability schemes must operate in a distributed manner and also handle large multi-failure events, e.g., natural disasters, power outages, WMD attacks, etc. Now a wide range of recovery schemes have been developed for single domain networks, including pre-provisioned protection and post-fault restoration. However most multi-domain studies have only looked at protection strategies and do not handle multiple failures. To address these concerns, this work first proposes a new scheme to achieve improved protection with lower routing overheads. This scheme is then augmented with probabilistic features to handle multiple failures, and novel post-fault restoration methods proposed. Performance evaluation is then done using simulation and comparisons made with existing strategies.< Less
Methodical Replication for Performance Scrutiny of Distributed Virtual Reality Systems By Hartinder Singh Johal

Results tend to be... More > numerical in nature, limiting their usefulness when comparing models. This paper describes an approach to using simulation to generate analytic forms of the performance measures required for virtual reality systems. The execution of each process is simulated, keeping track of the execution time of each process as a symbolic expression. Cycle times and latencies can be found by measuring the appropriate time intervals during simulation. The application of analytical simulation is illustrated by applying it to common issues in distributed virtual reality systems: network performance, database distribution and measurement of interactive performance. Comparing the analysis results with an implementation of the model demonstrates the accuracy of the predictions.< Less

Generating Uniform and Non-Uniform Random Deviates By brian kolo, aaron winters

Applied science often examines physical situations that obey non-uniform statistical distributions. Many applications use the normal distribution as an approximation. However, in cases of simulating... More > behavior, the normal approximation may not be appropriate because a normally-distributed random variable may range from negative infinity to infinity. This wide range of values may represent unphysical situations and may lead to unpredictable behavior in a simulated environment. We examine the generation of random deviates according to both uniform and non-uniform probability distributions. A classification scheme for uniform random number generation is considered as well as an examination of the NIST suite of randomness testing. Techniques for generating non-uniform deviates are considered as well including change of variables, inverse distribution, the rejection method, tabular methods, and multivariate methods. Each of the methods is considered along with a number of examples of applying these techniques.< Less
