Simulation Programming

  • Chapter
A Guide to Simulation

Abstract

There is nothing difficult about writing a simulation program. The essential components, a clock mechanism, a source of random numbers, and data structures to represent transactions, resources, and queues, can all be implemented without serious problems in any general-purpose high-level programming language. To support this contention, we begin the chapter with a brief account of how to write a simulation in Fortran.
