Book Description

Modern Statistical, Systems, and GPSS Simulation, Second Edition introduces the theory and implementation of discrete-event simulation. This text:

  • establishes a theoretical basis for simulation methodology
  • provides details of an important simulation language (GPSS - General Purpose Simulation System)
  • integrates these two elements in a systems simulation case study
    Valuable additions to the second edition include coverage of random number generators with astronomic period, new entropy-based tests of uniformity, gamma variate generation, results on the GLD, and variance reduction techniques.
    GPSS/PC is an interactive implementation of GPSS for the IBM-PC compatible family of microcomputers. The disk accompanying Modern Statistical, Systems, and GPSS Simulation contains the limited educational version of GPSS/PC with many illustrative examples discussed in the text.

    "This book is an impressive compendium of the most commonly used classical statistical procedures that one is likely to encounter either in practice or in the literature where statistical methods are applied."
