An alternative time management mechanism for distributed simulations
Wentong Cai, Stephen J. Turner, Bu-Sung Lee, Junlan Zhou
Pages: 109-137
DOI: 10.1145/1060576.1060577
Over the past few years, there has been a keen interest in the management of time in distributed simulation environments. Previous emphasis in time management (TM) services has been based on time stamp ordering, which is both computation and...

Simulating markov-reward processes with rare events
Winfried K. Grassmann, Jingxiang Luo
Pages: 138-154
DOI: 10.1145/1060576.1060578
Simulating continuous-time Markov reward processes containing rarely visited, but economically important states requires long simulation times unless special measures are taken. In this article, we consider Markov reward processes in equilibrium, and...

Comparison with a standard via fully sequential procedures
Seong-Hee Kim
Pages: 155-174
DOI: 10.1145/1060576.1060579
We develop fully sequential procedures for comparison with a standard. The goal is to find systems whose expected performance measures are larger or smaller than a single system referred to as a standard and, if there is any, to find the one with the...
