Modeling and Simulation

An Application-Oriented Introduction

by Hans-Joachim Bungartz, Stefan Zimmer, Martin Buchholz, Dirk Pflüger, Sabine Le Borne,

Die Autoren führen auf anschauliche und systematische Weise in die mathematische und informatische Modellierung sowie in die Simulation als universelle Methodik ein. Es geht um Klassen von Modellen und um die Vielfalt an Beschreibungsarten. Aber es geht immer auch darum, wie aus Modellen konkrete Simulationsergebnisse gewonnen werden können. Nach einem kompakten Repetitorium zum benötigten mathematischen Apparat wird das Konzept anhand von Szenarien u. a. aus den Bereichen „Spielen – entscheiden – planen" und „Physik im Rechner" umgesetzt.

In The Press

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)
