Discrete Event Simulation
Posted 10 Apr 2004 by herman
Reading sources and a Python program.
My lectures were based on two articles Distributed discrete-event simulation (in ACM Computing Surveys Volume 18, Issue 1, March 1986) and Parallel Discrete Event Simulation (in Communications of the ACM, Volume 33, Issue 10, October 1990). The first two or three pages of the first article contain a nice description of single-host discrete-event simulation. Pdf copies of these articles can be accessed from a University of Iowa computer.
The program I used to demonstrate discrete event simulation, for customers arriving to an ATM, is shoqGUI.py.
My lecture on Time Warp was adapted from this: Power Point Presentation.
