The field of modeling and simulation is expanding as interest in the discipline and its applications increase. This book discusses definitions, paradigms, applications, and sub-disciplines as a way of detailing and reviewing the field of modeling and simulation. It provides an incisive analysis of the key concepts, body of knowledge, and practical applications, including chapters on Verification, Validation, and Accreditation (VV&A) as well as Visualization, which are crucial elements not seen in many texts. Graduate students and professionals in statistics, mathematics, engineering, and computer science will be prepared to use modeling and simulation in their studies and research.
