From the reviews:
“This is an introductory textbook to modeling and simulation that are considered as systematic approach to gain knowledge and results. … The book is very suitable for the first touch with the topics. It contains very intuitive examples for learning. … it has to be an excellent advertising of computer modeling and simulation.” (Eduard Kostolansky, zbMATH, Vol. 1281, 2014)
