Part of the Simulation Foundations, Methods and Applications book series (SFMA)


This book is divided into three parts. In the first part, we discuss basic DEVS and SES concepts and tools to support working with these concepts in the context of an actual modeling and simulation environment, called MS4 Modeling Environment (MS4 Me™). Then in Part II, we discuss more advanced concepts that such tools can support, and in Part III, we discuss some actual applications that throw light on the kinds of System of Systems problems that can be addressed with such concepts and tools.
