CGDD 4703 – Data Modeling and Simulation

Prerequisite: MATH2260


This course provides an introduction to modeling and simulation. Both the theoretical as well as applied aspects of simulation are covered. Topics include discrete-event simulation, states, transitions, model definition, model quality, input and output analysis, input distributions, experimental design, optimizing models, levels of model detail, cost-quality tradeoffs, verification, and validation. Students will be required to simulate a complex system which necessitates the creation of models. Students will explore and utilize a simulation API.
