In defense of discrete-event simulation
Ernest H. Page
Pages: 281-286
DOI: 10.1145/159737.159743

Synchronous relaxation for parallel simulations with applications to circuit-switched networks
Stephen G. Eick, Albert G. Greenberg, Boris D. Lubachevsky, Alan Weiss
Pages: 287-314
DOI: 10.1145/159737.159744
Synchronous relaxation, a new, general-purpose, efficient method for parallel simulation, is proposed. The method is applied to obtain a new parallel algorithm for simulating large circuit-switched communication networks. To...

On the lattice structure of the add-with-carry and subtract-with-borrow random number generators
Shu Tezuka, Pierre L'Ecuyer, Raymond Couture
Pages: 315-331
DOI: 10.1145/159737.159749
Marsaglia and Zaman recently proposed new classes of random number generators, called add-with-carry(AWC) and subtract-with-borrow(SWB), which are capable of quickly generating very long-period (pseudo)-random...

Simplifying the modeling of multiple activities, multiple queuing, and interruptions: a new low-level data structure
Ruth M. Davies, Robert M. O'Keefe, Huw T. O. Davies
Pages: 332-346
DOI: 10.1145/159737.159755
Most conventional discrete-event simulation software assumes a simple progression of entities through queues and activities. Such software cannot cope easily with modeling systems where entities can be present in more than one queue, can be...
