Simulation of dynamic stochastic systems using models involving numerical and logical processes. Modeling concepts, description in terms of entities, attributes, and activities, time flow mechanisms, queues, event-oriented vs. particle-oriented models. Generation of stochastic variates, collection and evaluation of statistics. Simulation languages. Computer projects using a general purpose language (e.g. Fortran or Matlab) and at least one simulation language (e.g. GPSS) will be assigned.
