CSC 587 - Computational Science of Simulation and Modeling
A study of the behavior of complex systems by simulation of mathematical models on
digital computers. Modeling techniques for discrete-event and continuous systems,
deterministic and stochastic, will be introduced through projects which involve studentwritten
programs both in higher level programming languages and languages designed
for the purpose of simulation. Particular emphasis is given to the application of these
techniques to ongoing research in the fi eld of computer science. Prerequisites: CSC 505
or equivalent course. 3 credits.
