CS 5180 - Introduction to Computer Modeling and Simulation

Provides an overview of model development and computer simulation. A methodology is introduced which is generally applicable to simulation projects. The relationships between real systems, models, and simulation are presented, and the concept of experimental frames is discussed. General purpose simulation languages (e.g. Simscript, GPSS, CSMP, Simula) and the formalisms they support are presented. An introduction to random variables and elementary frequency distributions is provided. Simulation as a tool for exploring ill-defined systems will also be discussed. Several small programs and a simulation project will be assigned the student.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisites: CS 3310 and (IME 2610 or IME 2620 or ME 3620 or STAT 3640).

Credits: 3 hrs.

Notes: Open to Upperclass and Graduate Students. Undergraduates with junior or senior status who have met the specific course Prerequisites or have the permission of the instructor may enroll in 5000-level courses.
