A new inversive congruential pseudorandom number generator with power of two modulus
Jürgen Eichenauer-Herrmann, Holger Grothe
Pages: 1-11
DOI: 10.1145/132277.132278
Pseudorandom numbers are important ingredients of stochastic simulations. Their quality is fundamental for the strength of the simulation outcome. The inversive congruential method for generating uniform pseudorandom numbers is a particularly...

Synchronization mechanisms for distributed event-driven computation
Vijay K. Madisetti, David A. Hardaker
Pages: 12-50
DOI: 10.1145/132277.132279
We analyze distributed event-driven computation on message-passing parallel computing systems. Synchronization is the mechanism that ensures that causality in the ordering of stochastically generated events for execution during the computation...

A multimodel methodology for qualitative model engineering
Paul A. Fishwick, Bernard P. Zeigler
Pages: 52-81
DOI: 10.1145/132277.132280
Qualitative models arising in artificial intelligence domain often concern real systems that are difficult to represent with traditional means. However, some promise for dealing with such systems is offered by research in simulation methodology....

Structural and behavioral equivalence of simulation models
Enver Yücesan, Lee Schruben
Pages: 82-103
DOI: 10.1145/132277.132281
