Simulation Models

Part of the Lecture Notes in Economics and Mathematical Systems book series (LNE, volume 222)


Simulation models differ quite fundamentally to the type of optimization model discussed in the previous Chapters. An optimization model can be represented by
$$ Max (Or Min) f(x)$$
$$ subject to g(x)=0 $$
that is, some function of x is optimized subject to a set of constraints on x; if the objective function and the constraint set are linear equations in x, and x ≥ 0, we then have a socalled linear programming model, many applications of which we have already discussed. In contrast, a simulation model can be represented simply by
$$h(x) = 0.$$
