Introduction to Discrete-Event Simulation

Abstract

In our study of dynamic systems, our first goal is to obtain a model. For our purposes, a model consists of mathematical equations which describe the behavior of a system. For example, in Chap. 5 we developed the set of equations (5.7)–(5.12) which describe how the state of a DES evolves as a result of event occurrences over time.

Notes

  1. 1.

    We considered a two-philosopher two-fork version of this problem in Example 2.17 in Chap. 2 and in Example 3.16 in Chap. 3; deadlock avoidance is also discussed in these two examples.
