DiscreteEvent Simulations and Monte Carlo Techniques
“It was smooth sailing” vs. “I hit every stinkin’ red light today!” Think about all the factors that might affect how long it takes you to drive in to work every day. What are the factors that might affect your … Continue reading

Architectural Considerations for Simulation
The simulations I’ve written, designed, specified, and utilized have incorporated a number of different features. I found it interesting that I was able to describe them in opposing pairs. Continuous vs. DiscreteEvent I’ve gone into detail about continuous and discreteevent … Continue reading
Simulating Human Action
I used the book “Fundamentals of Classical Thermodynamics” by Van Wylen and Sonntag for my thermodynamics classes in college. In the first chapter it discussed the magnitude of relativistic effects compared to the magnitude of the general effects that would … Continue reading
A Simple DiscreteEvent Simulation: Part 81
This week and possibly much of next I’m concentrating on updating the fixed content of my website, which means I’m only going to be doing small increments on this project. I’ve decided that the next item to work on is … Continue reading
A Simple DiscreteEvent Simulation: Part 80
I was working on other things today so the only thing I added to this project was the grid. It’s at a yelevation of zero. More interestingly, it’s generation is automated, with the relevant code being shown below. Because floatingpoint … Continue reading
A Simple DiscreteEvent Simulation: Part 79
The direct link to the latest version is here. Open this in a new window and try resizing it. While preparing to give a presentation at the CharmCityJS Meetup this Wednesday I spent quite a bit of time investigating the … Continue reading
A Simple DiscreteEvent Simulation: Part 78
Today I did a bunch of work behind the scenes, starting with automatically determining the exclusivity of components based on their defined capacities, where appropriate. Queue, Process, Bag, and Combined components are exclusive if their governing capacities are finite and … Continue reading
A Simple DiscreteEvent Simulation: Part 77
Today I created a combined QueueProcess component I called a Combined component. You can see it in today’s version of the model as component 50, labeled C21, having replaced queue 21 and process 21. I suspect that this will become … Continue reading
A Simple DiscreteEvent Simulation: Part 76
Today I added a series of Queue and Process components into the pathway traversed by the subentities leaving and returning to the Bag component. I found one change I had to make, which was adding the ability of the ReturnFromSubJourney … Continue reading
A Simple DiscreteEvent Simulation: Part 75
Today I expanded the capability of the Bag component to allow entities to reside there, spawn new subentities that undergo an external process of their own, and return to the “parked” entity. Delay times can be specified that control how … Continue reading
